By Junno Arocho EstevesROME(CNS) -- The key to ending extreme poverty and hunger is to recognize thatbehind every statistic, there is the face of a person who is suffering, PopeFrancis said."Povertyhas a face! It has the face of a child; it has the face of a family; it has theface of people, young and old. It has the face of widespread unemployment andlack of opportunity. It has the face of forced migrations, and of empty ordestroyed homes," the pope said June 13 during a visit to the Romeheadquarters of the U.N.'s World Food Program.Advancedcommunications, while informing the world of the tragedy of poverty, has alsoresulted in a desensitized culture that has turned the real suffering of peopleinto statistics, the pope told WFP executive board members.The world is gradually "growing immune to otherpeople's tragedies, seeing them as something 'natural,'" he said. "Without faces and stories, human lives becomestatistics and we run the risk of bureaucratizing the sufferings of others...
Vatican City, Jun 13, 2016 / 05:50 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In a world where information is brought instantly to our fingertips, society is becoming increasingly anesthetized to the suffering brought about by poverty, Pope Francis told the United Nations' World Food Programme on Monday.“We are bombarded by so many images that we see pain, but do not touch it; we hear weeping, but do not comfort it; we see thirst but do not satisfy it,” the Pope said during the visit to the WFP Rome headquarters. “All those human lives turn into one more news story.”In prepared remarks delivered in his native Spanish, the pontiff said the global interconnectedness created by modern communications technologies has led to an “information overload” which is increasingly making us “immune to other people's tragedies.”  “It is not enough to offer broad reflections or engage in endless discussion, constantly repeating things everyone knows...

A group of Pakistani clerics has issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring "honour killing" over perceived damage to a family's reputation against the teaching of Islam, and anyone who carries out such an attack a heretic.  Hundreds of Pakistanis, the vast majority women and girls, are murdered every year by relatives after being accused of damaging a family's honour. Most cases involve young women trying to chose partners against a family's wishes.  The ruling by the Sunni Ittehad Council, which includes more than 100 prominent clerics, comes after a string of particularly shocking killings including the burning to death by a mother of a 16 year-old girl who eloped with a young man."It seems were are moving towards an age of barbarism," the council said in its fatwa issued on Sunday, a rare edict on the problem in the Muslim majority country of 190 million people. "Burning women alive for marrying by their choice is against the ...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis says it is a “strange paradox” that food often cannot get through to those suffering due to war but weapons can. He was speaking on Monday during his first visit to the World Food Program, the Rome-based United Nations agency that fights hunger.WFP is currently engaged in and committed to the “One Future Zero Hunger” Global Goal set by world leaders for 2030.Listen to the report by Linda Bordoni: Reflecting bitterly on the fact that that while the distribution of food supplies are often obstructed in war zones, weapons - Pope Francis said - are trafficked freely.“As a result, wars are fed, not persons” and he continued: “In some cases hunger itself is used as a weapon of war” as  the number of people dying of hunger and thirst  is added to that of battlefield casualties and the civilian victims of conflicts and attacks.“We are fully aware of this – he said – yet we allow o...
(Vatican Radio)  The United States’ Ambassador to the Holy See, Kenneth Hackett, has condemned the mass shooting Sunday 12 June at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida and says he personally, thinks “we have to do something about the access to weapons in our society.”At least fifty people were killed and 53 wounded by a gunman toting an assault weapon.Listen:  Ambassador Hackett told Vatican Radio’s Tracey McClure that “we are all united in grief with the families who have suffered from this horrific massacre.  This is not the first [such shooting]; it seems to be the largest.  We’re just taken [aback] with the violence, the acts of terror and hate that are perpetrated on people and you really have to send your prayers out and hopes that the families will be able to get through this terrible thing.  [I’m] just calling for peoples’ prayers for the families of those people who are suffering so much.”Asked ...
