Caritas to launch global campaign against poverty
March 29, 2012
The leader of Caritas Internationalis--the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies--said in an interview that Caritas will launch a global campaign against poverty in October 2013.
“As [the] Church we want each one in his community to grow to the level that God expects from each of us,” said Michele Roy, the confederation’s secretary general. “We were created as children of God in his image and likeness, and the environment must give conditions of dignity, of fraternal relations. And poverty impedes these relations. And we must do so together, inspired by the social doctrine of the Church, which enables us to change this world in a more just way.”
