QUOTES FROM POP FRANCIS

"It makes no difference where arms come from;
they circulate with brazen and virtually absolute freedom in many parts of the world.

As a result, wars are fed, not persons.
In some cases, hunger itself is used as a weapon of war.
The death count multiplies because the number of people dying of hunger and thirst
is added to that of battlefield casualties
and the civilian victims of conflicts and attacks."
