If I may be so bold, I was captured by these word more than the many spoken by Pope Francis:
“A selfish and boundless thirst for power and material prosperity leads both to the misuse of available natural resources and to the exclusion of the weak and disadvantaged.”
I have no doubt that Pope Francis challenged President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner in their private meetings in Washington, D.C.
The people of America have spoken with their presence on all fronts. I am not of the Catholic faith, but I heard him.
