Pope did not give Communion to Muslim prisoner

Pope Francis gave Communion at the Holy Thursday liturgy to a Muslim. Traditionalist websites and some media had spread this misleading message. Pope Francis did not give Communion on Maundy Thursday to a Muslim Bosnian woman . This has learnt from well-informed Vatican employees. The Internet has in the past few days disseminated this misinformation on traditionalist websites specifically to discredit the Pope. Also this been reported in some newspapers in a misleading manner. Observers who were present at the Mass confirmed that the Pope had not done so. During the Mass, he washed and kissed the feet of twelve young prisoners of different nationalities and faiths.


Cathcon- I did not say he had given Communion.
