ITALY-VATICAN-POPE-IMMIGRATION-HOLY THURSDAY

In this handout picture released by the Vatican Press Office, Pope Francis poses for a selfie with a migrant during his visit at the Castelnuovo di Porto refugees center near Rome on March 24, 2016. Pope Francis washed the feet of 11 young asylum seekers and a worker at their reception centre to highlight the need for the international community to provide shelter to refugees.

Several of the asylum seekers, one holding a baby in her arms, were reduced to tears as the 79-year-old pontiff kneeled before them, pouring water over their feet, drying them with a towel and bending to kiss them. / AFP PHOTO / STR / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE – MANDATORY CREDIT “AFP PHOTO / OSSERVATORE ROMANO” – NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS – DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS
