Ahead of Pope Francis’s World Day of the Poor on Sunday, November 17, Caritas Australia has issued a challenge, calling on women and girls across Australia to stand in solidarity with women and communities experiencing poverty globally. The aim is to raise $50,000 by November 17, with the Catholic Church’s aid and development agency urging Australia-wide supporters to sign up and host a fundraiser for Women for the World.

If we examine our consciences, too, we might see it as a fault merely to tolerate people instead of treating them as friends. The child of tolerance is often loneliness.
