.- Thanks to the Peter’s Pence Collection, the Holy Father can respond with financial assistance to international emergency situations, such as natural disasters and refugees.
A collection for the fund will be held in U.S. churches this month. The theme is “Goodness Works Quietly.”
“The power of love is expressed in the unassuming quietness of daily service,” Archbishop John G. Vlazny said. “Through works of charity, Catholics provide a quiet but powerful witness of love and deeds to empower the weak, the defenseless, and the voiceless, and to sustain those who suffer.”
The collection is scheduled for June 25-26, the Sunday nearest the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.
