Highlights for Winter
The key to a Christian vocation is to find our ‘Kolkata’ and express our solidarity with the poor when we meet them.
We hope this edition of Madonna, ‘A heart for the poor’, brings into relief some of these different questions, and hope that you too might see the ways in which your own heart is moved in the direction of the poor.
