Pope Francis’ Love for the Poor


“How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points? Can we continue to stand by when food is thrown away while people are starving?” Evangelii Gaudium, 53.

In the fifth episode of Evenings with Pope Francis, Fr Thomas McFadden OFM Cap presents Pope Francis’ focus on the scandal of poverty, and how in the poor we encounter “the flesh of Christ”.


Evenings with Pope Francis was an initiative of Catholic Youth Services, Sydney, held at The Mill Hotel in Milperra.
