The Shepherd and His Flock

Pope Benedict XVI arrives for a visit at a soup kitchen in Rome, Sunday, December 27, 2009, despite raised security fears. Escorted by heavy security, the pope traveled to the soup kitchen to share a meal with the poor. It was his first appearance outside the Vatican since Thursday evening. The pope smiled at children, caressing the hands of some of them as he entered the center operated by the Sant’Egidio Community, a lay Catholic group based in Rome.
