The Saints next Door

Light of Truth

Pope Francis praised the work of Catholic Action, which was marking the 30th anniversary of the Inter-national Forum of Catholic Action, and urged its members to respond to humanity’s thirst for God “The saints and blessed laypeople of Catholic Action are a wealth for the Church,” he said. “They were ‘the saints next door’ of so many communities.”… He said it shares fully in the Church’s mission of evangelization and should therefore be available to respond to her needs in every place. “With the strength of the Spirit, we need to offer an answer here and now to the cries of the world,” he said. “To hear them we must go out and be a Church-on-the-move that rea-ches out like the Good Samaritan.”
