CWN Editor's Note: “The poor person who begs for my love leads me straight to God,” Pope Francis preached during the Mass for the World Day of the Poor (video, booklet). “The poor facilitate our access to heaven: this is why the sense of the faith of God’s People has viewed them as the gatekeepers of heaven. Even now, they are our treasure, the treasure of the Church.”
