The pope may be one of the richest few on the planet, but don’t get it twisted, the current Pope is on the side of the poor, or so he says.

On Sunday, the Catholic church dedicated the Sunday service to the World’s poor, and the Pope Francis invited needy persons and volunteers to Mass as well as to lunch at the Vatican.

In his homily, Francis called injustice the “perverse root of poverty.” He lamented that while the cry of the poor becomes stronger, it is drowned out by “the din of the rich few, who grow ever fewer and richer”.
