The first-ever World Day of the Poor will take place Sunday, November 19th. The initiative comes directly from Pope Francis. Catholic Relief Services, the main humanitarian arm for the U.S. bishops, has a key role in the effort. The chairman of the organization, Brooklyn’s Maronite Bishop Gregory Mansour, tells Currents News Tim Harfmann why the undertaking is so important.
