Pope makes history, converts special Vatican palace to place for the homeless

- Pope Francis has converted the 19th-century Vatican palace, Palazzo Migliori, to a place for the homeless

- The initial plan for the palace was to make it a hotel that would have generated a lot of revenue

- Presently, about 50 people occupy the place where some of them have described it as a comfortable zone

Pope Francis has made the significant 19th-century palace, Palazzo Migliori, that is close to the Vatican, a place where homeless people can live.

Daily Mail reports that it was planned to be turned into a 5-star hotel when it became vacant and could have been a huge source of revenue because it was close to St Peter’s Square.

With the Pope’s intervention, it has now become a sanctuary where homeless people can always find comfort and has been called “A Place for the Poor”.

It should be noted that the place was blessed by the Pope on Friday, January 31, before the World Day of the Poor.

Another thing worthy of note is that the place was the headquarters of the Calasanziane religious order which give care to single mothers.

The building was first owned by the Catholic church in the 1930s but still bears the name of the Roman family that built in the 1800s.

With the new development, there are about 50 homeless people in its 16 dormitories. One of the inhabitants, Mario Brezza, spoke about how the place really feels like home as he has its own bed, room, and bath.

On the other hand, Sharon Christner, one of the volunteers at the shelter, said that if the church sold the church, they would have made a lot of money and given it to the poor.

When his wife got tired of his eating pattern, she came up with a solution one night after the man had gone to bed.
