QUOTATION: Pope Francis on Blaming the Government

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis)
When Jesus comes to judge us, He will say to some, "Because I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me to drink, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me." And they will ask the Lord "When did I do that? I don't remember." And He will respond. "Everytime you helped the poor, you helped me." But He will also say to others, "Go away, because I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat." And He will also condemn us for the sin of blaming the government for poverty, when it is a responsibility we must all assume to the extent we can.
