Pope condemned mankind's 'hunger for wealth and power'

The pope said,

“men and women in our world, in their hunger for wealth and power, consume even their neighbours, their mothers and sisters.”

Who can argue with that?

That’s man’s sole pursuit in this world. More gain, more wealth, no matter the cost to someone else.

question: so i guess this would include the pope, because after all he is just a man!

I think this statement is hypocritical. All the wealth that he sits on and the trinkets that are worth countless millions, and for what? I don’t think Christ cares about a letter signed by JFK.
Isn’t he the one who said man shouldn’t have walls, we should welcome in our brothers and sisters? How many homeless could be housed in the area where all the bingo cards, ever used, are stored?
