Pope Francis, who has admitted to missing normal outings for a slice of pizza since he was elected Pontiff, is offering some 1,500 poor and needy a pizza lunch in the Vatican after Mother Teresa’s Canonization Mass this morning.
According to Vatican Radio, this Italian favorite will be served in the atrium of the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall to those needy coming, especially from the houses of the Sisters of Mother Teresa, who have come from all over Italy including Milan, Bologna, Florence, Naples and all the houses in Rome, at night in coaches.
These individuals were also invited to this morning’s Canonization Mass.
Those serving the guests include some 250 Sisters of Mother Teresa, 50 Brothers of the congregation for men and other volunteers.
