FIRST WORLD DAY OF THE POOR TO BE ON THE 19 NOVEMBER 2017

His Holiness Pope Francis

“This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him” (Ps 34:6).  The Church has always understood the importance of this cry.  We possess an outstanding testimony to this in the very first pages of the Acts of the Apostles, where Peter asks that seven men, “full of the Spirit and of wisdom” (6:3), be chosen for the ministry of caring for the poor.  This is certainly one of the first signs of the entrance of the Christian community upon the world’s stage: the service of the poor. http://www.sacbc.org.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Poor-day-MESSAGE-OF-HIS-HOLINESS-POPE-FRANCIS.docx
