Pope Francis “The hope of the poor shall not perish forever” (Ps 9:19)

 

“These words of the Psalm remain timely. They express a profound truth that faith impresses above all on the hearts of the poor, restoring lost hope in the face of injustice, sufferings and the uncertainties of life.

I ask all Christian communities, and all those who feel impelled to offer hope and consolation to the poor, to help ensure that this Third World Day of the Poor¬†will encourage more and more people to cooperate effectively so that no one will feel deprived of closeness and solidarity.”
