World Day of the Poor
On Nov. 18, people across the world will commemorate the second World Day of the Poor. In his message for this occasion, Pope Francis calls “all of us [to] feel that we are in debt to the poor, because, in hands outstretched to one another, a salvific encounter can take place to strengthen our faith, inspire our charity and enable our hope to advance securely on our path towards the Lord who is to come.”
