LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Catholic Team Global is an organization of faithful Catholics committed to doing good in the world. Sponsored by Catholic Online and Your Catholic Voice Foundation, Catholic Team Global has the plan to help end world hunger and its root cause, which is poverty.

Can we do this? Yes we can!

Pope Francis has called on all the world's Catholics to join him in both 'Prayer and Action' to eradicate world hunger by 2025. Catholic Team Global is part of that mission.

The plan involves several simple, key components.

Prayer: Prayer is powerful. Through prayer we can empower ourselves to change the world. We can also invoke the power of the Holy Spirit to facilitate change.

Action: Action is key. Prayer alone does not feed people, but prayerful action does. Pope Francis has made this clear. We need to follow our prayers with action! That means donating to feed the poor and supporting the plan that will lift people from poverty for good.

Catholic Team Global's Moral Education Initiative will provide students in need with food, which they will receive at school. In many parts of the world, children are sent to school so they can eat. We will feed these hungry children in accord with Pope Francis' wishes.

Then, we will provide students with powerful learning tools such as the XO Tablet, which is the perfect tool designed specifically for education in the Third World. 

Using these tablets, we will excite imagination and inspire learning. Students will receive the moral education - and this is key, they must learn a moral curriculum, to break the cycles of corruption and poverty that harm their societies.

Within a generation, we fully expect to be part of a movement to break millions out of poverty and to make the world a better place.

All this starts with you joining Catholic Team Global. The only commitment you will be making now will be to pray for the success of our movement, the work of Pope Francis and the Church, and the feeding of the poor. We hope you will be moved to follow your prayers with action.

As a member of Catholic Team Global, you'll also have a support network in place to pray with you and support you in all that you do.

This is now your invitation to join our community and to get to know us. Our Catholic Team Global Facebook page is here.

You can learn more about what we're doing here.

You are the team that's going to make a lot of amazing things happen through your 'Prayer and Action.'

Let's go!

We Need Courageous Bishops: Ignatius of Antioch is a Model Watch

Image of Ignatius of Antioch - I know what is to my advantage. At last I am becoming his disciple. May nothing entice me till I happily make my way to Jesus Christ! Fire, cross, struggles with wild beasts, wrenching of bones, mangling of limbs-let them come to me, provided only I make my way to Jesus Christ. I would rather die and come to Jesus Christ than be king over the entire earth. Him I seek who died for us; him I love who rose again because of us.
