‘Stretch forth your hand to the poor…’
This is not only the theme, but the encouragement, for the imminent Fourth World Day of the Poor, to be held on Nov. 15, 2020.
Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting New Evangelisation, underscored this during a virtual press conference streamed–due to the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic–from the Holy See Press Office today, Nov. 12, to present the upcoming day’s initiatives. Also presenting was Msgr. Graham Bell, under-secretary of the same Pontifical Council.
