Comforting Jesus Christ in Combating Hunger, Sickness, and Poverty
April 2, 2009
Presenter: Ken Hackett, president, Catholic Relief Services.
Pope Benedict XVI wrote in Deus Caritas Est that “love for widows and orphans, prisoners, and the sick and needy of every kind, is as essential to [the Church] as the ministry of the sacraments and preaching of the Gospel.” Who are our neighbors and how do we express this love for them in the 21st century? This presentation discusses how building global solidarity can transform our world.
