  • Description

    In Rome last night (Thursday) Pope Paul performed a traditional act of humility by washing the feet of twelve children.

    The act is symbolic of the same act of humility by Christ, when he bathed the feet of his twelve apostles before the Last Supper.

    The children came from all five continents, and the countries they represented were Italy, Canada, Australia, Eritrea, Argentina, India, Colombia and the United States.

    The ceremony is one of the easter rituals in the Roman Catholic Church.

    Pope Paul washed the right foot of each child.
