When you see a sentence like this, drawn from the Pope's message for World Food Day....

Guaranteeing individuals and peoples the chance to defeat the scourge of hunger means ensuring they have real access to adequate and healthy nourishment.

... you get the sense, right away, that the statement must have been drafted by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace-- the same office that vouchsafed the observation, earlier this year, that water is important to life

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    The Holy Father's a terrific writer. Why does he need to have these messages drafted for him by the hacks in the PCJP?
