World Day of the Poor – Pope Francis

Pope Francis challenges us not to simply “embrace” the poor and “give them alms”, but to stay with them, and by doing, further a culture of encounter contrary to the dominant culture of use and neglect. As a part of this challenge, he has instituted an annual World Day of the Poor on November 19th. See here for the whole document, a beautiful and challenging reflection and call to action to love the body of Christ hidden in the poor.
