Pope Francis greets members of Catholic Action

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Thursday gave a special greeting to the members of Catholic Action, who on the feast of the Immaculate Conception renew their membership in the organization.

Catholic Action was founded in Italy in 1905, and is one of the main lay apostolates in the country.

“I give a special thought to all the [Catholic Action] diocesan and parish associations,” – Pope Francis said during his Angelus – “May the Virgin bless Catholic Action and make it more and more a school of holiness and generous service to the Church and to the world.”

Catholic Action has over 400,000 members in Italy, and every year over 1 million people participate in their activities.
