Pope Francis celebrates the Lord's last Supper

Pope Francis celebrated mass at the Don Gnocchi centre in Rome on Thursday evening on the occasion of the Lord’s last Supper which commemorates the institution of the Eucharist. The centre houses the elderly and the disabled. During the liturgy the Holy Father washed the feet of twelve people who included nine Italians, one Muslim from Libya, a young man from Cape Verde and an Ethiopian woman, all of whom have received help and support from the Don Gnocchi Foundation to overcome the difficulties, marginalization and isolation they often face on account of their age or disability.
