Pope Francis (Cardinal Bergoglio)
We have to experience the profundity of not placing so much importance on the food with which we deprive ourselves as on the food that we make available to the hungry person through our privations. May our voluntary fast be what prevents so many involuntary fasts among the poor.  Let us choose to fast so that no one else is forced to.

--Pope Francis (Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio), Lenten Gesture of Solidarity, 2011
