Listen to Those in Need – Pope Francis

The World Day of the Poor is celebrated on 18 November  and this year focusses on verse 6 from Psalm 34, “This poor one cried out and the Lord heard.”

In calling all in the Church to uphold this day Pope Francis has asked: “How is it that God in heaven can hear the cries of the poor, but so many people watching or standing nearby either cannot or just do not care.”

In his message for the 2018 World Day of the Poor the Pope calls Christians to make “a serious examination of conscience to understand whether we are really capable of listening to the poor.”
