Dear Friends in Christ: Next Sunday, I shall be on my way to attend perhaps my last meeting of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. This letter reminds me that it Was my first such meeting, May of 1970, which I attended as the new Bishop of Evansville, when the prin- c.ipal action item was the institution of the Campaign for Human Development. I saw it as a great idea then and I am equally enthusiastic about it now. Our Church has done more than write a Pastoral Letter about the United States eCOnomy. The improvements which we Uggested in that letter, we have at- mpted to address through the Cam- .paign for Human Equality. Because of YOur generous response CHD has become a major funder of self-help pro- ]ects in our country. In his latest encyclical, "On Social Concerns," Pope John Paul II reminded us of the religious nature of our solidari- ty with the poor when he said, "By vir- tue of her evangelical duty, the Church feels called to take her stand beside the poor, to discern the justice of their re- quests and to help satisfy them." That is precisely what the Campaign for Human Development is all about: taking a stand with poor. There are peo- ple of intelligence, of energy, of will- ingness to rise above the "hellish circle of poverty" which stubbornly holds them back. What they need is a chance for advancement. It is within our power to supply that chance through our car- ing and sharing. The collection for this splendid cause will be taken up in all our churches on the week-end of November 19-20. Keep those people in your prayers and help them materially if you can. Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend Francis R.
