Laudato Si' Anniversary - Day Six - 15 June 2017
“The treasures of the Church are the poor,” the Pope told a group of 200 poor, sick and disabled pilgrims from the French diocese of Lyon, and gave them a special mission...He asked them to pray “for those guilty of your poverty so they convert,” and to pray for wealthy people who “make merry with large banquets without realizing that at their doors there are many Lazaruses eager to be fed the leftovers of their table.” (CNA)
V. Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor and the earth.
R. You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
