Vatican City, March 21 - Pope Francis will
celebrate his first Maundy Thursday next week by washing
inmates' feet at a mass inside Rome's Casal del Marmo juvenile
detention center, the Vatican announced Thursday.
Also known as Holy Thursday, the feast day celebrates the
Last Supper of Jesus Christ with his apostles.
"In his ministry as archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal
Bergoglio (now Pope Francis) used to celebrate this mass in a
prison or hospital or home for the poor," said the Vatican in a
statement.
With the mass inside Casal del Marmo, "Pope Francis will
continue the tradition, which should be characterized by a
context of simplicity".
Francis will celebrate a mass inside St Peter's Basilica
earlier on the same day.
