Last edited 21st December 2011

Pope Benedict XVI visited the Rebibbia prison located in Rome. There, he met with 300 inmates, who were allowed to address the Holy Father with questions. The Pope then gave an emotional speech, saying he prayed for the prisoners and noted that Christ was once imprisoned:“Prisoners are human beings who deserve, despite their crime, to be treated with respect and dignity. They need our attention.”
