Papal praise for Italian charitable group
October 31, 2013
Pope Francis met on October 31 with members of the Circolo San Pietro, a charitable association of Italian men, and thanked them for their service to the poor.
The Pontiff observed that care for those in need is a duty of every Christian, and commended the group for carrying out that work. He said that “every day each one of us is called to console, to become a humble but generous instrument of God's providence and of His merciful goodness.”
