A new low for the Vatican: The Pope himself is now kissing the feet of Muslim ‘refugees’
The Pope’s ritual where he washes and kisses the feet of twelve men, took place at a center for asylum seekers just outside Rome, confirms the Vatican.
There, he washed and kissed the feet of twelve young asylum seekers to show the international community the importance of providing refugees shelter, said an official in the Vatican.
– It was simple, but expressive, says Archbishop Rino Fisichella on a visit to Castelnuovo di Porto, located 30 kilometers north of Rome.
The ritual Thursday commemorates how Jesus humbly washed the disciples’ feet the night before he died. Previous Popes have washed the feet of the cardinals at the Vatican, but Francis has broken with this tradition since he was elected in 2013.
