Drawing Close to the Poor

Drawing Close to the Poor

"It is essential to draw near to new forms of poverty and vulnerability, in which we are called to recognise the suffering Christ.

I think of the homeless, the addicted, refugees, Indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned and many others.

Migrants present a particular challenge for me, since I am pastor of a Church without frontiers, a Church which considers herself mother to all".

(Pope Francis in The Joy of the Gospel)
