Framingham pastor tells of working with pope in homeland

FRAMINGHAM — “This pope will see the world from the poor and humble peoples’ [perspective],” said the Rev. ­Volmar Scaravelli, pastor at St. Tarcisius Church in Framingham, who spent five years working with the newly named Pope Francis.

“This is very important for social justice,” he said following a Mass for the new pontiff at the church Wednesday evening. “I hope he will be the pope of the social worker and the poor and will do a good job.”
