Crux - At mafia prison, Francis says Holy Thursday is not ‘folklore’  
In a maximum security prison for mafia informers on Holy Thursday, Pope Francis washed the feet of a dozen inmates, telling them that it is a gesture meant to be a reminder of God's love for humanity: "Until the end, giving his life for each one of us." He insisted the ceremony is not "folklore," but a remembrance of what Jesus himself did.
