  1. Finally, religion in action doing something incredibly helpful! Rad.

  2. A step in the right direction.
    Vatican City should set the example to transform some of the luxury buildings into housing for refugees and the homeless

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.npr.org/2020/02/07/803423754/pope-francis-turned-a-vatican-palazzo-into-palace-of-the-poor-for-homeless-peopl) reduced by 83%. (I’m a bot)

    > Pope Francis Turned A Vatican Palazzo Into 'Palace Of The Poor' For Homeless People "If you sleep on the ground covered in cardboard and have to wake up at 5 a.m. before the police come to shove you away, and then you find a place like this, what more do you want?" says a new guest.

    > Volunteers from the Community of Sant'Egidio, an Italian lay Roman Catholic association that carries out charitable projects, run the new, Vatican-owned palazzo turned homeless sanctuary.

    > Instead, Pope Francis ordered it to be transformed into a home – or rather, says director Carlo Santoro, a palace – for "Nobles of the streets," those who "Francis says society treats as rejects, victims of today's throwaway culture.”

  4. Definitely a nice gesture. Wondering if they will start allowing people to freely come and go from Vatican City anytime they want and still be offered food, water, a place to sleep and other human rights amenities.

  5. Is this the replacement for the “Palace Of The Pedophiles”?

  6. Basic, and very old tactic, publicity stunt, it will not hide their corruption and atrocities of suppressing truth and knowledge.

  7. Why not do the full monty? The Catholic church is rich as shit.
