The meeting marked the 40th anniversary of Caritas in Italy. The pope noted that thanks to Caritas, those in need have not felt abandoned by God. He also praised the success record from this Catholic NGO, saying it served as an example for all of society.

Benedict XVI
“Dear friends, do not abandon your educational task, even when things are difficult and no effort seems to give results.”

Caritas in Italy has been a branch of the Italian Episcopal Conference since its founding in 1971, working for the welfare of the needy, helping them to find work and working for the equality of immigrants.
