CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Matteo Zuppi of Bologna, president of the Italian Episcopal Conference, lamented poverty in Italy as he opened the conference’s 79th general assembly.

The health of the country is of particular concern,” he said. “It is increasingly difficult to get out of the abyss of destitution.”
