The stance of 40 Bishops who put pen on paper to dedicate their lives and work for the Poor is in our today’s world an example worth emulating and promoting. To live amid plenty and not feel the pains, misery, and above all, the anger in the eyes of the Poor is a grave sin that individuals, societies and organisations with all pleasure are willing to embrace. Often, the question is raised: Who are the Poor and the answer therein, this piece of research work tries to articulate. When humans created in God’s image are left without essential assistance to ‘lick their wounds’ as Lazarus did, their rights trampled upon, their voices silenced, and even their deserved wages barely or not paid, then we speak of the Poor. In this group of persons, the Poor, the Bishops of the Catacomb Pack of 1965 (Domitilla) reminds Individuals, societies, organisations, and indeed the Church and her leaders to see the necessity to align human, social and pastoral life in the task of caring for the Poor.
