Pope Francis to Angelus: If each person accumulates wealth for himself, there will never be justice

2014-03-03

Despite the rain, thousands of pilgrims gathered at St. Peter's Square to listen to the Pope's Angelus message on Sunday morning.

He talked about the Gospel reading of the day, and asked Christians not to be too concerned about material wealth because "there are no pockets in the burial shroud.”

POPE FRANCIS
"In a heart possessed by riches, there is no longer much room for faith: everything is concerned with riches, there is no room for faith. If, however, God is given his rightful place, in other words, the first place, then his love will lead us to share our riches too.” 

The Pope said that if everyone accumulates wealth to put them at the service of others, God's providence would show itself as solidarity.

POPE FRANCIS
"If each person accumulates wealth for himself, there will never  be justice. But if, trusting in God's providence, we search for his Kingdom together, then no one will need anything to live with dignity.”

Pope Francis also talked about the situation in Ukraine, and asked the international community to support dialogue between all sides involved.

POPE FRANCIS
"While I hope that all parts of the country will endeavor to overcome misunderstandings and build together the future of the nation. I call on the international community to support any initiative for dialogue and harmony.” 

After his remarks, the Pope also recalled that this week marks the beginning of Lent. He shared his hope that, "humanity will reach the justice, reconciliation, and peace, it badly needs, but turning to God.”
