"Cartoneros" Doing God's Work

"We can't afford the luxury of looking down on leftovers. We're living in a throw away culture where we easily throw out not only things, but people too." says Pope Francis.

The "cartoneros" in Buenos Aires, Argentina search through the trash to find goods that can be used or recycled, and in this video Pope offers his praise and support.

Pope Francis has been noted for his humility and his concern for the poor. He choose to reside in the Domus Sanctae Marthae guesthouse rather than the papal apartments of the Apostolic Palace formerly used by his predecessors.

He is known for favoring simpler vestments with no ornamentation. He refused to wear the traditional papal mozzetta cape upon his election, he chose silver instead of gold for his piscatory ring, and keeping the same pectoral cross he had when he was cardinal.
