Pope Francis’ “Poor” Get Him Into Troubles

[Is His Holiness not heeding Our Lord’s words: “For the poor you have always with you: but me you have not always” (Matthew 26:11) and “Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me” (Matthew 25:40)?]


Some days ago, Vatican police ejected the homeless, who had established themselves underneath the Colonnades of Saint Peter with the explicit permission of Pope Francis, who provided them with showers, toilettes and even a special barbershop.

According to Italian media reports the homeless were surprised when the police woke them up around 6.00 a.m. and moved them out. They had been living there for months.

Italian media explain this turnaround of Pope Francis with a video showing a homeless urinating and defecating underneath the Colonnades in broad daylight. The video went viral and caused considerable scandal.

However, the media explains, that this has been going on for months under the eyes of the Vatican.
