Pope Francis to FAO: We must stop hunger now

2013-06-20

POPE FRANCIS
"This, I believe, is the significance of our meeting today. To share the idea that something more can and must be done in order to provide a new stimulus of international activity on behalf of the poor, inspired by something more than mere goodwill or, worse, promises which all too often have not been kept. Nor can the current global crisis continue to be used as an alibi. The crisis will not be completely over until situations and living conditions are examined in terms of the human person and human dignity.”

The Pope also said that everyone should feel an increased sense of responsibility. As far as the Church, the Pope said it can offer fundamental assistance to the FAO and member states of the UN in the fight against hunger and poverty.

POPE FRANCIS
"The human person and human dignity risk being turned into vague abstractions in the face of issues like the use of force, war, malnutrition, marginalization, the violation of basic liberties, and financial speculation. All these presently affect the price of food, treating it like just another merchandise, overlooking its primary function. Our duty is to continue to insist, in the present international context, that the human person and human dignity are not simply catchwords, but pillars for creating common rules and structures that can go beyond purely pragmatic or technical approaches. In doing so,we can eliminate divisions and bridge differences.”

The FAO's annual conference began on June 15th and will run until June 22nd. The meeting is attended by many political leaders, such as the presidents of Ghana, Panama and Venezuela.
