World Day of the Poor

Sunday 14 November 2021 is the fifth World Day of the Poor, initiated by Pope Francis in 2017 with the theme of “let us love, not with words but with deeds.”  Christian are called to follow the example of Jesus in loving God and neighbour, especially the most vulnerable.

The theme for this year’s World Day of the Poor is “for the poor you have always with you” from the words of Jesus at the anointing in Bethany just before his Passion.
