Pope: workers, families must be crisis priority

Pope Benedict XVI is encouraging political leaders and industrialists to make workers and their families the priority during the economic crisis.

Benedict spoke to pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square Sunday. Fiat autoworkers from southern Italy, worried about the future of their factory, were in the crowd.

The pope says he wants to encourage political leaders as well as industrialists to work together during what he calls a ‘delicate moment.’

He says strong, joint efforts are needed, but that they must keep in mind that the priority must be workers and their families.
