"Natural Resources Being Squandered"

Pope Hits Out At Consumer Culture

Pope Benedict XVI has attacked popular culture and consumerism in a formal address to tens of thousands of young Roman Catholics. The pontiff also warned that natural resources were being squandered, in the speech in Sydney, Australia. The pope is visiting the city for World Youth Day, a six-day gathering of young Catholics from across the globe. Security is tight for the visit - during which he is also expected to apologise for sexual abuse by priests.
