This would probably be Pope Francis’ most significant break of tradition yet when he washed and kissed the feet of two young women at a juvenile detention center.

Many conservatives and traditional Catholics are criticizing the Pope by saying that he has set a “questionable example”. Liberals on the other hand are appreciating the gesture. Pope Francis has been able to gather positive reaction for the scandal-stricken Vatican and it certainly is an accomplishment on his part.

Twitter has a lot to say about Pope’s visit to the Casa del Marmo detention facility in Rome. People appear to be impressed. There are some, not many, who think otherwise but let’s just focus on the positive side of things for Pope Francis who is really trying hard to restore the image of the Vatican City, even if it takes a break with long-time traditions.

Have a look at some of the tweets praising the Pope:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pope Francis will recite the Passion of Christ in St. Peter’s Basilica and is also expected to carry the wooden cross on his shoulder on Good Friday. The recently elected Holy Father is sure a lot different from his predecessors in many ways and maybe that’s why he is being praised by many people from all over the world.
