Poverty in Virginia

By Stephen J. Carattini, special to the Catholic Herald

Pope Francis reminds us, “whenever we encounter a poor person, we cannot look away, for that would prevent us from encountering the face of the Lord Jesus.”

Every day at approximately 3:30 p.m., people begin to line up outside of Catholic Charities Christ House in Old Town Alexandria to receive a free, hot, evening meal.
