Serving a poor church for the poor

Fratello, in collaboration with dioceses and associations from all over the world, wants to serve at the very heart of the Church, to meet the poorest and give them their rightful place in the Church: the first !

At the end of the Jubilee of Mercy, I wanted to offer the Church the World Day of the Poor, so that throughout the world Christian communities may become ever more and better concrete signs of Christ's charity for the least and for those who are most in need. To the other World Days instituted by my predecessors, which are now a tradition in the life of our communities, I would like to add this one, which brings to their whole a typically evangelical complement, that is, Jesus' predilection for the poor.

The network serving people in difficulty

Without the daily commitment of associations, parishes and dioceses, Fratello would be nothing. Thank you to everyone who builds a church that cares every day for the little ones.

"Return with Hope!"
