Pope’s pizza feeds homeless people

October 05 2016
Francis invites 1,500 homeless people  to a free lunch at the Vatican


Pope Francis invited 1,500 homeless people from across Italy to a free pizza lunch at the Vatican after Mother Teresa was declared a saint on 4 September.

Most of the homeless people invited live in shelters run by nuns from Mother Teresa’s Sisters of Charity and were given seats of honour at the canonisation Mass.

A pizza-maker from Naples cooked the lunch in the Vatican auditorium in three pizza ovens with 20 staff members and about 250 sisters and priests from the Sisters of Charity.
