Pope Francis spoke of the need for creative entrepreneurship in the face of "scandalous poverty" Wednesday, stressing the importance of generosity with one's possessions.
"If there is hunger on earth, it is not because food is missing!" Pope Francis said in St. Peter's Square Nov. 7.
"What is lacking is a free and far-sighted entrepreneurship, which ensures adequate production, and a solidarity approach, which ensures fair distribution," he continued.
"Possession is a responsibility," Francis stressed. "The ownership of a good makes the one who owns it an 'administrator of Providence.'"
