In their own words…

“We live in the most unequal part of the world, which has grown the most yet reduced misery the least,”  Cardinal Bergoglio said during a gathering of Latin American bishops in 2007. “The unjust distribution of goods persists, creating a situation of social sin that cries out to Heaven and limits the possibilities of a fuller life for so many of our brothers.” Pope Francis

“The question which divides men in our time  is no longer a question of political systems. It  is a social question: that is of knowing which  will prevail: the spirit of selfishness or the spirit  of sacrifice? Whether society is to be simply a  great opportunity of exploitation for the benefit  of the strongest or a dedication of everyone for  the benefit of all and especially for the protection of the weak. Bl Frederic Ozanam 1836
