A Way Has To Be Found To Enable Everyone To Benefit From The Fruits Of The Earth, And Not Simply To Close The Gap Between The Affluent And Those Who Must Be Satisfied With The Crumbs Falling From The Table. Pope Francis, June 20, 2013, United Nations Food And Agriculture Organization Bread For The World There Was Once A Rich Man Who Used To Dress In Purple And Fine Linen And Lead A Life Of Daily Luxury And At His Gate Lay A Poor Man Named Lazarus. He Was Covered With Sores. He Longed To Be Fed With The Crumbs That Fell From The Rich Man's Table... Luke 16-19-21 Sometime In Your Life, Hope That You Might See One Starved Man, The Look On His Face When The Bread Finally Arrives, Hope That You Might Have Baked It Or Bought It--Or Even Kneaded it Yourself. For That Look On His Face, For Your Hands Meeting His Across A Piece of Bread, You Might Be Willing To Lose A Lot Or Suffer A Lot--Or Die A Little, Even. Daniel Berrigan, S.J., 1991 Poster by John August Swanson, 2014
