Pope condemns human ‘hunger for wealth and power’ at Christmas Eve Mass
BBC reported that Pope Francis condemned human “hunger for wealth and power” at Christmas Eve Mass in the Vatican, seemingly referring to the war in Ukraine and other conflicts.
“How many wars have we seen!” he said, adding that the main victims were “the weak and the vulnerable”.
“I think above all of the children devoured by war, poverty and injustice,” the pontiff added.
He was addressing worshipers at St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.
“While animals feed in their stalls, men and women in our world, in their hunger for wealth and power, consume even their neighbours, their mothers and sisters,” he said.
