Vatican Pope~s Charit_Rich copy.jpg

A nun prepares papal parchments, hand-made certificates with a photo of Pope Francis, in the "Elemosineria" , the office of the Vatican Almoner, at the Vatican, Friday, Nov. 29, 2013. The almoner's duties are two-fold: carrying out acts of charity and raising the money to fund them. Konrad Krajewski is the Vatican Almoner, a centuries-old job of handing out alms � and Francis has ramped up the job to make it a hands-on extension of his own personal charity. The office funds its work by producing papal parchments that the faithful can buy for a particular occasion � say a wedding, baptism or priestly ordination � with the name of the recipient and an apostolic blessing written in calligraphy.
