From Associated Press:
PANAMA CITY (AP) — Pope Francis is bringing World Youth Day to Panama’s juvenile delinquents who can’t participate in the Catholic Church’s big festival of faith.
Francis on Friday will celebrate a special penitential Mass inside the Las Garzas de Pacora detention center, which is Panama’s main youth lockup. In a twist, he will also hear the inmates’ confessions inside confessionals the detainees made themselves. It’s all part of Francis’ belief that prisoners deserve the same dignity as everyone else — as well as hope.
