VATICAN CITY — While archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis was known to sneak out at night and break bread with the homeless, part of his aim to share the plight of the poor.
That's not so easy to do now that he's pope. But Francis still provides one-on-one doses of emergency assistance to the poor, sick and aged through Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, the Vatican Almoner.
As Americans gathered for Thanksgiving, Krajewski described how Francis is showing the true meaning of giving during a chat with journalists.
"The Holy Father told me at the beginning: 'You can sell your desk. You don't need it. You need to get out of the Vatican. Don't wait for people to come ringing. You need to go out and look for the poor,'" Krajewski said.
