In Pope Francis's recent apostolic exhortation, he made it abundantly clear: in all places and circumstances, Christians are called to hear the cry of the poor.

That's why we're joining Pope Francis's campaign to end hunger. Tomorrow, our members will pray and act in solidarity with millions across the globe to address the scandal of hunger in a world that has plenty to eat.

Will you join us in this effort? Your prayer and your action on behalf of the hungry gives flesh to Mary's words in today's Gospel: God will lift up the lowly and fill the starving with good things.

Also, please don't forget to contribute to our end-of-year matching campaign. Every dollar we raise between now and December 31st will be doubled through the generosity of an angel donor.

Will you chip in? Become a member or make a one-time contribution today.

Your support ensures that our work of protecting God's gifts can continue to thrive in our Nation's Capital.
