The Pope Goes to Prison

PopeAlthough I am not Roman Catholic, I am impressed with the new Pope. I am especially impressed with the announcement that he will be observing Holy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter) at a prison.

Past Popes have traditionally lead the Holy Thursday service at a church, but this year Pope Francis will celebrate Mass in the Casal de Marmo, a juvenile detention center on the outskirts of Rome. In addition to serving communion, Pope Francis will be washing the feet of some inmates.

What an amazing demonstration of servant leadership. What an amazing demonstration of Jesus.
