In the developing world our brothers and sisters have immense needs. Jesus came to “preach the good news to the poor” (cf Matthew 11:5, Luke 7:22). How can we fail to lay greater emphasis on the Church’s preferential option for the poor and the outcast?
Indeed, it has to be said that a commitment to justice and peace in a world like ours, marked by so many conflicts and economic inequalities, compels us to raise our voice on behalf of the poor.
Thus, in the spirit of the book of Leviticus (25:8-12), we should out loud on behalf of all the poor of the world.
