Pope calls for fair distribution of wealth (ANSA) - Vatican City, February 4 - Pope Francis called for a fair distribution of wealth and warned against love of money and power Tuesday.

"When power, luxury and money become idols, they take priority over the need for a fair distribution of wealth," the pope said in his latest indictment of the ill effects of unbridled capitalism. "Our consciences thus need to be converted to justice, equality, simplicity and sharing," said the pope in his message for Lent, the period leading up to Easter.
