2. Could you point out the paragraph where the Pope says that?

http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/francesco/apost_exhortations/documents/papa-francesco_esortazione-ap_20131124_evangelii-gaudium_en.html

He inveighs against markets, but he uses "wealth" only in 3 places. "Capital" and "capitalism", nor "socialism", are nowhere to be found. There doesn't appear to be a negative attitude towards the accumulation of wealth and redistribution is through charity and good works of the church, not governmental redistribution or revolutionary seizures.
