Pope Francis has ramped up the Vatican’s charity work by sending his chief alms-giver and a contingent of Swiss guards onto the streets of Rome at night to do what he usually can’t do: comfort the poor and the homeless. A few nights a week, Archbishop Konrad Krajewski takes a few off-duty Swiss guards with him in his modest white Fiat to make the rounds at Rome’s train stations, where charities offer makeshift soup kitchens that feed 400-500 people a night. Often they bring the leftovers from the Vatican mess halls to share. Take a look at this beautiful article about his work: Vatican Almoner
I love this pope and what he is doing. If he was here in Los Angeles, I get the feeling he would come out and join us for the St. Paul's Sycamore and Romaine Outreach Ministry.
