VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Benedict is appealing for "courageous
displays of brotherhood" in the face of the global economic crisis.

Speaking at the Vatican yesterday, Benedict said the crisis has left some people "searching for signs of hope."

The pope also expressed worry that hope risks being diminished
amid "the growing trouble, the weakening of families, the uncertainty of conditions facing youth."

He told his audience in St. Peter's Basilica that "taking care of the needy means not just giving bread to the hungry, but also letting yourself ponder the causes why the other person is hungry."
