VATICAN CITY, August 08, 2013 (Zenit.org) - Pope Francis sent an affectionate greeting today to Argentinian Catholics who will take part in the "More for Less" National Collection. The campaign, which is promoted by the local bishops, will reflect on the theme "We Trust In Your Help".

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State, sent the message on behalf of the Holy Father who encouraged the faithful to "assume the Christian commitment of solidarity inspired by the faith in God who has given us everything.

Cardinal Bertone also stated that the Pope invited all Argentinians to "identify themselves more with Christ, cultivating His friendship with prayer and the celebration of the Sacraments, and to find the strength to give - without ceasing - a precious service of support to those in need, in particular, the poorest.

According to Vatican Radio, last year's collection yielded $2.9 million for the campaign which financed several initiatives throughout the poorest dioceses of Argentina.
