Pope calls for greater kindness towards poor

(see related stories) Vatican City, August 8 - Pope Francis on Thursday called for greater compassion and care for the poor as he urged support for a collection drive in his homeland Argentina. In a message to Catholics in Argentina, Francis urged them to do more in fellowship with the poor and support the annual ''Mas por Menos'' fund-raising effort scheduled this year for Sept. 8. Francis said those who seek a Christian commitment and solidarity ''inspired by faith in God who has given us everything'' must also share. Last year's collection raised almost $2.9 million to finance projects in some of Argentina's poorest diocese.
