For Security Purposes

Police move homeless people off Philadelphia streets ahead of Pope Francis’ Mass:
As crowds move into the city for Pope Francis’ large public Mass on Sunday (Sept. 27), the homeless are heading out — part of a high-security lockdown forcing people off the streets.

The displacement of the homeless people comes amid the pope’s repeated calls for greater income equality and social inclusion of the poor.

He told members of Catholic Charities during his Washington, D.C., stop Thursday that there was “no justification whatsoever for lack of housing.”

Then the pope lunched with homeless people in the nation’s capital, forgoing an invitation to dine with members of Congress.
