Pope Francis Joins 1,200 guests for World Day of the Poor Sunday Lunch

Pope Francis joined 1,200 guests at the Paul VI Hall to share Sunday lunch in celebration of the World Day of the Poor.

Following his Sunday Angelus, the Pope greeted the assembled guests, comprised of the less fortunate and their companions, turning the Hall into a unique restaurant for the traditional annual lunch with Pope Francis on the World Day of the Poor.

Commencing the lunch with a blessing, Pope Francis expressed gratitude to the Lord for the “moment of friendship, all together,” the meal, and those involved in its preparation.

The tables, adorned with white and yellow flowers, provided a vibrant setting, capturing an unforgettable moment of welcome, concern, care, and love for those living on the streets throughout the year.

The Dicastery for the Service of Charity organized the event, and Hilton Hotels contributed the lunch, paying special attention to the menu to ensure enjoyment by people of various faith backgrounds in attendance.

The menu featured cannelloni with Roman ricotta and spinach in Parmigiano Reggiano sauce, sautéed white meatballs with velouté of San Marzano tomatoes and basil, along with cauliflower purée, concluding with Tiramisù and small pastry desserts.

Before departing, Pope Francis expressed gratitude to everyone involved for making the lunch possible and for fostering a festive atmosphere.
