Vatican to open showers for homeless

Splish-splash, I was taking a bath, long under Bernini's Colonnade…
A Vatican worker fills in the cracks in Bernini's Colonnade in March 2013, before the conclave. Three showers for the homeless will soon be installed in the colonnade's public washrooms.

With apologies to Bobby Darin for the headline above, the homeless will soon be bathing under the colonnades.

According to Msgr. Konrad Krajewski, three showers are slated for construction in the public washrooms. He came up with the idea after meeting Franco, a homeless man, who alertly pointed out that he could find places to eat, but rarely a place to wash.
