Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that the wealthy few enjoy what, in justice, belongs to all and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants.
Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peters Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.
In his homily, Francis said we Christians cannot stand with arms folded in indifference or with arms outstretched in helplessness about those in need. He cited the stifled cry of the unborn, of starving children, of young people more used to the explosion of bombs than happy shouts at the playground.
He also drew attention to the plight of abandoned elderly, the friendless and the cry of all those forced to flee their homes and native land for an uncertain future. It is the cry of entire peoples, deprived even of the great natural resources at their disposal.

Pope Che strikes again.
He listed a lot of victims but he left out the boys and seminarians despoiled by his minions.
Frank can feel the hot breath of the law breathing down his neck.
Did Pope Scrooge give $5,000 to each attendee?
Doesn’t the ‘church’s collect from the poor to maintain the ‘splendors’?
What, like a mansion with very high security walls and its own security force?
Is there anybody who lives in more royal splendor than a pope? Perhaps being surrounded by the greatest works of art mankind has ever produced has made this dude feel guilty about all that wealth.
Says the fat old man who occupies two floors in a 5-star hotel.
He speaks to his own condition. He lives in unmatched opulence. He speaks as God. His power over vast populations is bridled only by his own authority.
Let him seek the sandals of Peter and surrender all for Christ. He cannot. He is not of Christ and does not have His Spirit.
Oh good pope is going to give out most of the money the Catholic church has to the needy........Pfft! Evil pope. Let the needy stay with you behind those walls with all your riches.
Please, please bring back John Paul! Better yet, Benedict - You don’t even have to resurrect him God!
Go away faux pope.
So says the single leader of a wealthy organization. I suppose he thinks everyone should also be pope.
Particularly at pizza joints near DC, eh Frannie?
Well the Pope could easily unload the jewels off the vast array of dead bodies they've adorned their skeletons with to start.
The people are being drawn away from first things
This Pope is not teaching the truth of what actions
separate one from the Kingdom of God and how
Desperately important it is to combat these things
9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?
Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind...
15Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
16What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6
The scourge of unrighteousness in the Body of Christ
must not be hidden and ignored,
the witness to the World is being horribly damaged
The damage to the flock is equally horrible
The Pope MUST face this travesty, or abdicate
