“Every form of externally imposed poverty has at its root a lack of respect for the transcendent dignity of the human person. . . The poor, [Pope John Paul II] wrote, ‘ask for the right to share in enjoying material goods and to make good use of their capacity for work, thus creating a world that is more just and prosperous for all’”
“The Christian community [must offer]. . . gestures of creative solidarity, not only by ‘giving from one's surplus’, but above all by ‘a change of life-styles, of models of production and consumption, and of the established structures of power which today govern societies’. . . Effective means to redress the marginalization of the world's poor through globalization will only be found if people everywhere feel personally outraged by the injustices in the world and by the concomitant violations of human rights”
(From Fignting Poverty To Build Peace, Pope benedict XVI, 2009, Peace Day Message)
