Pope welcomes four new ambassadors: Ethics should be at the center of economic policies

2013-05-16

POPE FRANCIS
“One cause of this situation, in my opinion, is in the our relationship with money, and our acceptance of its power over ourselves and our society.”

The Pope explained that money has become a type of idol, where humans are reduced to a commodity.

POPE FRANCIS
“We have created new idols. The worship of the old golden calf has triggered a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any truly humane goal.”

So, the Pope encouraged these four new ambassadors to help politicians build a more stable economic system back in their countries. A system, he said, which can foster the common good.

POPE FRANCIS
“For her part, the Church always works for the integral development of every person. In this sense, she reiterates that the common good should not be seen as something extra or a conceptual scheme attached to political programs.”

Speaking of the poor, the Pope said solidarity is their treasure, even though at times it may seem counterproductive or contrary to the financial and economic sector.

The Holy See has diplomatic relations with 179 countries, the Order of Malta and the European Union.
