Pope: When people try to act like God, destruction follows

2014-11-03

To celebrate All Saints Day, Pope Francis presided over a Mass in Rome's Verano cemetery. In his homily, he talked about the dangers that can come,  when people try to act like God.

POPE FRANCIS
"This is what we're doing. This is what we do: We devastate Creation, life, culture, values. We devastate hope.” 

He then denounced the many wars being fought throughout the world, adding that it promotes a throw away culture. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"And wars. Wars continue and they don't plant seeds of life, but rather of destruction. It's the industry of destruction. It's a system that also applies to life. When something can't be fixed, one just throws it out. This includes children, the elderly, young people without a job.”

The most vulnerable, he explained,  like the poor and the weak, often pay the price when mankind tries to take over Creation. 

POPE FRANCIS
"This is happening now. It's as though these people, these hungry children, the sick, it seems as though they don't count. It's like they are a different species. This crowd goes before God and asks, 'Save us! Please give us peace. Please give us food. Please we want work.” 

Towards the end, the Pope called on men and women who destroy, to convert by following the path of the Beatitudes.
