LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Catholic Team Global is on the fast track to become the newest and largest movement of Catholic laity the world has ever seen. Dedicated to doing good in the world, Catholic Team Global is made of people all around the world who have one thing in common, they want to make the world a better place, one good deed at a time.

Pope Francis inspires us by his simple acts of mercy and kindness. Whether he's kissing a leper, or making a sandwich for a hungry guard, or possibly walking the streets of Rome in disguise and feeding the homeless, Pope Francis is doing his part.

JOIN NOW - This is your chance!

Thus inspired, we too can do the same. We don't need to be pope to make a difference where we live. More importantly, we're backed by an international team of prayer warriors as well as the world's largest Catholic presence online.

Making a difference is simple. Even if sometimes it isn't always easy. How simple? It's as simple as getting into the street and passing out sandwiches. Or clothing. Or hygiene kits. It's as simple as buying groceries for your neighbor in need. All of these activities are worthy.

Another option for those of you who are too busy to go out, is to simply donate to help the poor and let other Catholic Team Global members do the rest. For example, a single purchase of Vita Meal can feed a child for a month.

Already, Catholic Team Global members have donated over 25,000 meals to children worldwide since December 2013. It's the start of what we hope will eventually be millions.

Or, you could donate medicine. What about pro-life? Catholic Team Global is donating ultrasound machines and appointments for troubled mothers in need.

You know in your heart what you should do. There's no need to tell you what your action should be. A few moments spent in prayer are all you need  to decide how you will answer Pope Francis' worldwide plea. As you should already know, on Dec. 10, Pope Francis asked all of the world's Catholics to join him in a long-term campaign of sustained 'Prayer and Action' to end world hunger by 2025.

Pope Francis explained that we must each give in order to end world hunger. We must pray, we must certainly pray, but we must follow that prayer with action.

We know you pray already. It's time to take the next step. Will you walk with us? Will you join Catholic Team Global? Membership is free, and the benefits are out of this world!
