The Vatican has opened a medical clinic at Pope Francis’ request adjacent to the shower stalls and barber shop that the pontiff already had opened next to the colonnade of St. Peter’s Square.

As is usually the case for the pope’s charitable initiatives, the clinic was set up by Polish Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, the man appointed by Francis as his personal representative in aiding the poor.
