The First World Day of the Poor

Pope Francis established the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time as the World Day of the Poor. This year it falls on November 19th and its theme is: “Little children, let us not love in word or speech, but in deed and in truth” (1 Jn 3:18). For us, apostles of Divine Mercy it is a special occasion to practice works of mercy towards the poorest. May the Holy Spirit open our eyes and hearts so that we may see those who need our support and come to their aid.

We encourage you to read the message of Pope Francis for the First World Day of the Poor.
