Pope Tells Leaders to Take Action

Next week, leaders from around the world will be gathering in New York for a two-day U.N. summit to discuss the financial crisis. In his weekly address, Pope Benedict urged the leaders "to transform the crisis into an opportunity for greater attention to the dignity of every human and a fairer distribution of power and resources." It is unacceptable that so many people are starving throughout the world, he said, and it is the responsibility of developed countries to provide the proper assistance for them.
