CWN Editor's Note: In a June 27 address to representatives of the UN’s Good an Agriculture Organization, Pope Francis said that the persistence of hunger in the world demonstrates “a failure of compassion, the lack of interest on the part of many, and a scant social and political will to honor international obligations.” The Pontiff also called attention to an “evident link between environmental instability, food insecurity, and migratory movements.”
