Pope Francis: Message for World Day of the Poor

“We cannot feel ‘alright’ when any member of the human family is left behind and in the shadows,” he says.

The Pope laments a frenetic pace of life that leads people into a “whirlwind of indifference”.  He adds that it is only when something happens that upsets the course of our lives do our eyes become capable of seeing the goodness of the saints “next door”.

Devoting a significant part of his message to the Covid-19 pandemic, Pope Francis draws attention to the many “outstretched hands” in the form of doctors and nurses who have been caring for patients in these difficult months. He also commends the outstretched hands of administrators, pharmacists, priests, volunteers and others who have given of themselves day and night and without fanfare.
