World Day of the Poor
At the end of the Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis urged the entire Christian community to reach out to the poor, the weak, and to all whose dignity is trampled. The motto for the World Day of the Poor on Sunday November 19, 2017 centers around the concrete call to action: “Love not in word but in deed” taken from the First Letter of Saint John, revealing the nature of God as being Love in action, exemplified and expressed in God sacrificing His Son for humanity (John 3:16).
