Pope Francis spoke about the global economic crisis in a forum hes not very used to, surrounded by university professors and the world of culture in Sardinia. The Pope said that we are living through a changing environment.
"I think about the decay of the environment: This is dangerous. Let's think of the future, of the war for water that looms; to social inequalities, to the terrible power of weapons we have spoken about these past few days; of the economic and financial system, which does not have man at the center, but rather money, the god of money; of the development and the weight of the media, with the positives they have to communicate and transport. This is a change that deals with the way in which humanity carries forward its existence in this world.”
The Pope also called on academics to create a culture of solidarity, and not to fear dialogue.
