Pope Francis, at a Mass for poor and homeless people, warned Sunday against the "anesthetized consciences" of those who see the needy as bothersome instead of as brothers and sisters to be helped.About 6,000 homeless, poor and displaced people from a dozen European countries and Africa were brought to the Vatican by charity groups to have their own special day in the Catholic Church's Jubilee Year of Mercy, which ends next week.During the Jubilee Year, which began on Dec. 8, the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics have been urged to carry out acts of mercy and mutual forgiveness and to make pilgrimages to Rome or to local churches.
