VATICAN CITY (CNS) — While enjoying a private visit to the Sistine Chapel, a group of VIP guests — homeless people who live around the Vatican — were surprised by a visit from Pope Francis.
The 150 visitors had just reached the Sistine Chapel at about 5 p.m. March 26, when Pope Francis walked through the door.
“Welcome,” the pope said. “This is everyone’s house, this is your home. The doors are always open for all.”
