THINK PROGRESS - POPE GIVES OUT SLEEPING BAGS TO HOMELESS by Scott Keyes
Francis has also been quietly sneaking out of the Vatican to minister to homeless residents living on the streets.
Addressing poverty and economic inequality has become a central theme of Francis’ nearly two-year tenure. He has attacked unbridled wealth accumulation, pointing out that Bible calls for a “legitimate redistribution of economic benefits” in order to care for the poor. “How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?” said Francis last year. He has also been highly critical of trickle-down economics.
