Benedict XVI expresses support for collection ‘More for Less’ in Argentina

.- Pope Benedict XVI encouraged Argentineans to “generously contribute” to the 39th annual National Collection “More for Less,” which will take place on Sunday, September 14, in all parishes throughout the country.

In a message sent by the Apostolic Nuncio to Argentina, Archbishop Adriano Bernardini, to the members of the bishops’ Committee for Aid to the Regions Most in Need, which is organizing the collection, the Holy Father expressed his support for the initiative and urged Argentineans to “strengthen the bonds of solidarity” among themselves.

After sending greetings to the promoters, collaborators and participants of the collection, the Pope encouraged the faithful “to support and increase appropriate initiatives aimed at overcoming situations of poverty.”

Likewise, the Holy Father called for a “decisive commitment to foster hard work, honesty, a spirit of participation, and a respect for justice and human rights.”

The Pope also expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the people and the institutions that generously contribute to the success of the collection and affectionately imparted his Apostolic Blessing upon them.
