The poor at the centre
· At the Angelus the Pontiff speaks about Jesus' mission ·
The poor are “at the centre of the Gospel”. Pope Francis prayed the Angelus with the faithful in St Peter's Square on Sunday, 24 January.
In his address, the Holy Father recalled that the privileged recipents of evangelization are the “most distant of the suffering, the sick, those who are distant, suffering, sick, cast out by society”.
“Evangelizing the poor: this is Jesus’ mission”, the Pontiff said. “This is also the mission of the Church, and of every person baptized in the Church. Being a Christian is the same thing as being a missionary. Proclaiming the Gospel, with one’s word, and even before, with one’s life, is the primary aim of the Christian community and each of its members”.
