Before all else, the poor need God and his love, made visible by “the saints next door”, people who by the simplicity of their lives expresses clearly the power of Christian love. God uses any number of ways and countless means to reach people’s hearts.
Pope Francis. Message for the 3rd World Day of the Poor, November 2019
November 17 2019 - The World Day of the Poor allows us to grow in the conviction that sharing with the poor enables us to understand the deepest truth of the Gospel. The poor are not a problem: they are a resource from which to draw as we strive to accept and practise in our lives the essence of the Gospel.
