It is reported that prostitutes working on the streets of a coastal city near the Italian capital turned to a local priest to help them get food. The Catholic Church supported them. According to the 56-year-old Kraevsky, this is nothing more than following Christian principles.
“I do not understand why this attracts so much attention. This is the usual work of the church, this is normal, ”the cardinal said in a conversation with reporters. He pointed out that people in this situation very often do not have documents – they were taken by pimps – and therefore they can not count on the help of the state.
