There's hope for social progress

In Mexico, Pope says social change will come with revival of faith

Visiting Latin America for the second time in his pontificate, Pope Benedict XVI offered a message of hope for social progress rooted in a revival of Catholic faith.

The overriding message of the Pope's public statements during his three days in Mexico, March 23-26, was that this troubled country, and the region in general, cannot solve their problems, which include poverty, inequality, corruption, and violence, by following the prescriptions of secular ideologies.

Instead, the Pope said, peace and justice in this world require a divinely inspired change in the human heart.
