Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

2014-05-18

A group of academics, economists and Church leaders met to discuss how to incorporate fraternity and solidarity into the workplace.

When he met with the group, Pope Francis summed up the goal of the three-day Vatican conference.

POPE FRANCIS
"A Christian entrepreneur is called to always apply the Gospel to the reality he's working in: and the Gospel asks that we place people and the common good first, to do his part to create employment opportunities, jobs with dignity.”

The gathering was organized by the Centesimus Annus Pro-Pontifice Foundation. John Paul II established it two decades ago to spread the Church's social doctrine. This year, organizers had a concrete plan of action.

"To develop a hand book for business people in society, for those who have responsibilities in firms, so that they can really understand, and to build trust within their company.”

Participants in the conference talked about how trust within a company can lead to a better understanding in the workplace. This, participants said, can results in a "society of serving.”

"Modern economists look at the transaction costs. Economists show us that, the more trust, as within family, the more trust, as within society, in a business company, the lower the costs are.”

DOMINGO SUGRANYES
President, Centesimus Annus Pro-Pontefice
 "It's not easy because many businesses and economic groups are fighting to survive during these tough times. But it's indispensable, because if not, the balance and sustainability of social life will be threatened in the long-term.”

Organizers said the ideas they discussed are not exclusive to Catholics. Now that the conference is over, the foundation will start reaching out to business leaders to share their ideas.
