Paris, France - Lunch at Saint-Eustache on World Day of the Poor

The Community of Sant'Egidio and the poor.
"The cry of the poor: it is the stifled cry of the unborn, of starving children, of young people more used to the explosion of bombs than happy shouts of the playground. It is the cry of the elderly, cast off and abandoned to themselves. It is the cry of all those who face the storms of life without the presence of a friend. It is the cry of all those forced to flee their homes and native land for an uncertain future. It is the cry of entire peoples, deprived even of the great natural resources at their disposal" ((homily of Pope Francis for the World Day of the Poor's Mass).
