Pope Francis gives 2000 homeless immigrants Christmas gifts

(CNA/EWTN News).- How would you like to be a homeless immigrant in a shelter in Rome and suddenly receive a Christmas present- from the Pope?!? 

Our friends at CNA report that two thousand immigrants at a shelter near the Vatican received Christmas presents from Pope Francis on the evening of Dec. 14th.  Each  gift package consisted of a small envelope containing a Christmas card signed by Pope Francis, postal stamps, a pre-paid international calling card, and a free day-pass for Rome’s metro.
