VATICAN: On Holy Thursday Pope Francis celebrated the In Coena Domini Mass at the St Mary of Providence Centre of the Don Gnocchi Foundation in Rome, where he washed the feet of 12 disabled residents.

Last year the Pope visited the Casal del Marmo juvenile detention centre — not far from the Don Carlo Gnocchi Foundation — where he washed the feet of 12 young offenders. The Don Carlo Gnocchi Foundation offers cutting- edge motor rehabilitation to patients suffering neurodegenerative diseases, including a therapy pool.

The mass was celebrated at the Centre in the Casalotti zone in north-western Rome at 5:30 pm and attended by residents, along with their families and staff from the foundation. The staff included speech therapists, psychologists, physiotherapists, doctors and nurses. -- Vatican Insider
