WORLD DAY OF THE POOR

In this message,published on June 13, 2017, Pope Francis has announced a World Day of the Poor to be held on the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time every year. As we approach the first annual World Day of the Poor, Sunday November 19th, the Holy Father encourages us to a greater spirit of solidarity with the underprivileged. “This new World Day should become a powerful appeal to our consciences as believers, allowing us to grow in the conviction that sharing with the poor enables us to understand the deepest truth of the Gospel.”
