Next Monday, work will begin to renovate Vatican restrooms for pilgrims, but Pope Francis has also given instructions for showers to be installed where Rome‚Äôs homeless can wash.
Bishop Konrad Krajewski, or ‚ÄúDon Conrado‚ÄĚ as he is familiarly known, is the Pope‚Äôs ‚Äúalmoner,‚ÄĚ the person in charge of distributing alms on the Pope‚Äôs behalf. He recounts that it was a Sardinian homeless man named Franco who brought home the need for washing facilities.
Franco explained to the bishop that the greatest need for Rome‚Äôs homeless is a place to wash. ‚ÄúNobody dies of hunger,‚ÄĚ he said, ‚Äúyou can always find a sandwich to get by. But there are no places to go to the bathroom and wash.‚ÄĚ This was a revelation for Don Conrado, who had always assumed that food was the number one concern....
John, you're in somewhat rare form today here and on other threads, even calling Jim's pastor an idiot (basically). Everyrhing alright? I would be interested in reading explanations to your various opinions. Keep in mind, when people make comments on storys concerning anything Roman Catholic, they are commenting on a much bigger picture. For instance, the pope ordering the Installation of showers for the homeless is¬†a great thing, but it dwarfs a much larger, much more important topic that people use these good things to justify and forget about the spiritual damage this system does; eternal damage that no shower can wash away. On a side note, food took a back seat to showers here because anyone can find a sandwich? Hmmm. Nobody should be homeless or hungry while living within the demographic of the wealthiest country/state in the world; the home of Vatican city; the seat of the Roman system valued to be in the trillions. Installing a few showers shouldn't be such a big production, considering.
