BROADCAST: Apr. 20, 1989 | DURATION: 00:49:02


In her book, "People of God - The Struggle for World Catholicism" author Penny Lernoux says God is on the side of the poor. It's estimated that there are 900 million Catholics and 70% are from third world countries. Pope John Paul, being of the Polish culture is problematic because he can't relate to the poor of Latin America, says Lernoux.
