Pope hosts meal for 1,500 needy people
STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 18, ARTSAKHPRESS: The menu for all in the Vatican’s large audience hall, including the pope, was lasagna, chicken in cream of mushroom sauce, potatoes, sweets, fruit, and coffee, according to Reuters.
The pope’s guests were brought to the Vatican by volunteers of charity groups who help them daily.
All last week, a mobile clinic was set up in St. Peter’s Square where volunteer doctors have been giving the poor free specialist health care. General care is available year-round nearby, another of Francis’ initiatives.
