Amidst the trenches of American poverty, the U.S. bishops have found some stories of hope.
"St. Basil, in a much-quoted homily, once declared that the bread we clutch in our hands belongs to the starving, the cloak we keep locked in our closet belongs to the naked, the shoes we are not using belong to the barefooted." — Msgr. Charles Murphy, "The Good Life from a Catholic Perspective: The Challenge of Consumption" on USCCB.org
Among those most vulnerable in poverty are children. Pray for children experiencing poverty today.
As Poverty Awareness Month continues, learn about how war, disease, climate and other factors impact global poverty and ways you can help the poor around the world.
