“This liturgical season invites us to reflect on the heart of the Christian life: the charity.”

The Circle of St. Peter was founded in Rome in 1869 by a group of young people, led by Cardinal Iacobini. The Pope entrusted them to exercise charity for the poor, helping to start many activities for the welfare of those in the diocese of Rome.
