Pope calls hunger 'global scandal', urges lifestyle changes

Published: 12.09.13, 22:48 / Israel News

Pope Francis denounced the "global scandal" of hunger on Monday, calling for an international "wave of prayer" to bring attention to the plight of the needy and homeless. Since his election in March, Francis has frequently beseeched global leaders to fight poverty and growing inequality.


"We are in front of a global scandal of around one billion - one billion people who still suffer from hunger today," he said in a video message launching a campaign by Caritas Internationalis, a confederation of 164 Catholic charities working in 200 countries. (Reuters)
