Pope Opens Barber Shop



First he had showers installed for the homeless and held a raffle to raise money for them, now he is adding a barber shop.  Pope Francis will open a barbershop just for the homeless so that they can get haircuts and shaved. Professional barbers from Rome have volunteered for the project which is set to open along with the showers on February 16, 2015. If that is not enough, he also have 300 umbrellas distributed to Rome's homeless.  Rome has bee experiencing rainy weather lately.

Our Holy Father is reminding us that we must care for the least of our brothers.  The homeless despite their situation, still have value and must be cared for. Hopefully, this will inspire world leaders and others to do the same.
