Pope Francis Hosts Meal For 1,500 Needy People
The head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State, Pope Francis hosted around 1,500 poor and homeless people for lunch at the Vatican on Sunday.
To the Roman Catholics worldwide, today is a day of remembering the poor around the world.

The menu for all in the Vatican’s large audience hall, including the pope, was lasagne, chicken in cream of mushroom sauce, potatoes, sweets, fruit, and coffee.

The pope while addressing a mass in Saint Peter’s Square ahead of the lunch, revealed he was focused on giving concrete hope to the most disadvantaged,

Recently I saw some statistics on poverty. They make you suffer — the indifference of society towards the poor,” the pope said, thanking the medical staff who were providing free health care to the poor at the Vatican.

He also criticised what he called “the frenzy of running, of achieving everything right now, anyone left behind is viewed as a nuisance. And considered disposable.

Pope Francis established the World Day of the Poor in 2016, and since then it has been a source of joy to the needy in Italy and beyond.
