Pope Francis on Friday will open a Holy Door at the Caritas center for the homeless at Rome’s Termini Station.

The center, where homeless can find a bed and a meal, has been newly refurbished and is named after Caritas Rome founder Don Luigi Di Liegro and Pope St. John Paul II.

Speaking at the inauguration of the new centre, the present Director of Caritas Rome, Monsignor Enrico Feroci quoted the words of Don Luigi who said, “a city in which one man suffers less is a better city,” Vatican Radio reported.

Those words are inscribed on the walls of the new cafeteria, which caters for up to 600 homeless people every evening and offers a respite from the streets where people can come for warmth, contact with others, and a good meal.
