The Archdiocese of São Paulo and members of Catholic lay movements have been making a huge effort to deal with the needs of homeless people, but they say the problem is getting worse.
Brazilian Cardinal Odilo Pedro Scherer has lashed out at critics of a plan to use a flour made from food leftovers to add nutrients to food for the poor. Opponents of the plan have compared it to the rations given to animals. “Contempt is when we politicize the hunger of the poor instead of helping the poor,” the cardinal said.
