Pope Francis washes the foot of an inmate Thursday at the juvenile detention center of Casal del Marmo, Rome. Francis washed the feet of a dozen inmates in a Holy Thursday ritual that he celebrated for years as archbishop and is continuing now that he is pope. Two of the 12 were young women, an unusual choice given that the rite re-enacts Jesus' washing of the feet of his male disciples.
