The Pope Lands in NYC to Speak at the UN

CNN Just In! In a sweeping address to the U.N. General Assembly, Pope Francis presented himself as a champion of the poor and dispossessed, urging world leaders to adopt concrete solutions to combat war, widespread poverty and economic destruction.

Francis said the selfish pursuit of power and wealth is hurting the environment and the poor.

A selfish and boundless thirst for power and material prosperity leads both to the misuse of available natural resources and to the exclusion of the weak and disadvantaged,” Francis said.
