Benediction for 9/26/10

"Private property does not constitute for anyone an absolute and unconditional right. No one is justified in keeping for one’s exclusive use what one does not need, when others lack necessities."-- Pope Paul VI (encyclical letter Populorum Progressio, 1967)

Translated via closed captioning when quoted by Pope John Paul I:

"Private property is not for anyone an undeniable and absolute right.  No one has the privilege of being able to make use of his goods exclusively for his own benefit, beyond his own need, when others are dying because they have nothing."
