Pope Francis condemned rising riches disparity and the treatment of migrants on Sunday, saying the world ought not overlook those “tossed by the waves of life”.

“Injustice is the perverse root of poverty,”  Francis said at a Mass denoting the Roman Catholic Church’s yearly World Day of the Poor. “The call of the poor day by day winds up more grounded yet heard less, overwhelmed by the din of the rich few, who grow ever fewer and more rich.”

Francis likewise emphasized his support for migrants saying that individuals must focus on “each one of those compelled to escape their homes and local land for an indeterminate future”.
