A Message from Pope Francis
"Blessed, therefore, are the open hands that embrace the poor and help them: They are hands that bring hope. Blessed are the hands that reach beyond every barrier of culture, religion and nationality and pour the balm of consolation over the wounds of humanity. Blessed are the open hands that ask nothing in exchange... They are hands that call down God's blessing upon their brothers and sisters."
