Laudato Si' Anniversary - Day Four - 13 June 2017

Pope Francis said he wants a world without poverty: “We must continue to struggle for this.” But, he said, “I am a believer and I know that sin is always within us. And there is always human greed, the lack of solidarity, selfishness, which create poverty. For this reason, it seems to me a little difficult to imagine a world without poverty. . . . But we must always struggle, always, always”. (News.Va)

V. O God of the poor,
help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth,
so precious in your eyes.

You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
