CWN Editor's Note: “We can build any number of walls and close our doors in the vain effort to feel secure in our wealth, at the expense of those left outside,” Pope Francis wrote in his Message for the 3rd World Day of the Poor, a day that falls on the Sunday before the feast of Christ the King. The document was presented at a June 13 press conference (video, Italian-language transcript).
