The Diocese of Xuan Loc in Vietnam marked “World Day of the Poor” at The Peace College Xuan Loc with Bishop Joseph Dinh Duc Dao.
The prelate offered gifts and celebrated Mass with about 1,200 poor people — Catholics and non-Catholics — to also remember Vietnamese martyrs.
“Please do believe that God always loves the poor, like you,” said Bishop Joseph in his homily. “This love is manifested through the care of priests, religious, and the members of the Caritas,” he said.
The activity was organized through the efforts of Caritas in Vietnam.
Bishop Joseph also urged the people “to offer to others the gift of love … by sharing love and even with the humble gestures of caring.”
Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.” Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
