(by pio dal cin) Pope Francesco surprises everyone by celebrating the rites of the washing of the feet of Good Thursday into a Jailhouse near Rome that hosts young inmates charghed with minor crimes. Pope Francesco kneeled down and after washing the inmates' feet he kissed them as he reminded the gesture performed by Jesus on the night He was betrayed. During  the Last Supper Jesus washed His apostoles' feet telling them, as Pope Francesco reminded in his sermon that: "The bigger among us has to humiliate and become the smallest"
