Reuters-NBC News: Coverage of Evangelii Gaudium

"Pope Francis called for renewal of the Roman Catholic Church and attacked unfettered capitalism as 'a new tyranny,' urging global leaders to fight poverty and growing inequality in the first major work he has authored alone as pontiff...

...In it, Francis went further than previous comments criticizing the global economic system, attacking the 'idolatry of money' and beseeching politicians to guarantee all citizens 'dignified work, education and healthcare.'"
