Pope attacks global economics for worshipping ‘god of money’

ReutersBy Philip Pullella | Reuters

CAGLIARI, Sardinia (Reuters) – Pope Francis made one of his strongest attacks on the global economic system on Sunday, saying it could no longer be based on a “god called money” and urged the unemployed to fight for work.

Francis, at the start of a day-long trip to the Sardinian capital, Cagliari, put aside his prepared text at a meeting with unemployed workers, including miners in hard hats who told him of their situation, and improvised for nearly 20 minutes.

“I find suffering here … It weakens you and robs you of hope,” he said. “Excuse me if I use strong words, but where there is no work there is no dignity.”

He discarded his prepared speech after listening to Francesco Mattana, a 45-year-old married father of three who lost his job with an alternative energy company four years ago.

Mattana, his voice trembling, told the pope that unemployment “oppresses you and wears you out to the depths of your soul”.

The crowd of about 20,000 people in a square near the city port chanted what Francis called a prayer for “work, work, work”. They cheered each time he spoke of the rights of workers and the personal devastation caused by joblessness.

The pope, who later celebrated Mass for some 300,000 people outside the city’s cathedral, told them: “We don’t want this globalised economic system which does us so much harm. Men and women have to be at the centre (of an economic system) as God wants, not money.”

“The world has become an idolator of this god called money,” he said.

Sardinia’s coast is famous for its idyllic beaches, exclusive resorts and seaside palatial residences of some of the world’s richest people, including former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi and a host of Hollywood actors.

But much of the island, particularly its large cities and the vast agricultural and industrial interior, has been blighted by the economic crisis, with factories closed and mines operating at low capacity.

YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT, CLOSING MINES

Cagliari has a youth unemployment rate of about 51 percent. The Sulcis area in the southwest of the island is threatened with more unemployment from the looming closures of the Carbosulcis coal mine and an aluminum smelter.

The pope made clear that his assessment was not limited to the local situation.

“It is not a problem of Italy and Europe … It is the consequence of a world choice, of an economic system that brings about this tragedy, an economic system that has at its centre an idol which is called money,” he said to the cheers of the crowd.

While Francis’s predecessor Benedict also called for changes to economic systems, he was more likely to use dense intellectual language.

Francis, who as bishop of Buenos Aires sided with unemployed workers in their conflict with government austerity plans, ended his improvised speech with a prayer asking God to “give us work and teach us to fight for work”.

Francis said he did not want the crowd to see him as a smiling “cordial manager of the Church who comes here and says to you ‘have courage’”.

He added: “I don’t want this. I want this courage to come from inside me and push me to do everything I can as a pastor and a man.”

Francis brought tears to the eyes of some in the crowd when he told his own family’s story of emigration from Italy to Argentina and how they lost everything in the Great Depression.

“I was not born yet, but as a child I remember hearing talk of this suffering,” he said.

Francis said globalization had brought with it a culture where the weakest in society suffered the most and often, those on the fringes “fall away”, including the elderly, who he said were victims of a “hidden euthanasia” caused by neglect of those no longer considered productive.

“To defend this economic culture, a throwaway culture has been installed. We throw away grandparents, and we throw away young people. We have to say no to his throwaway culture. We want a just system that helps everyone,” he said.

Pope, in Syria peace appeal, calls for end to spiral of death
By Philip Pullella | Reuters
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – A sombre-looking Pope Francis made an impassioned appeal before 100,000 people on Saturday to avert a widening of Syria’s conflict, urging world leaders to pull humanity out of a “spiral of sorrow and death”.

Francis, who two days ago branded a military solution in Syria “a futile pursuit”, led the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics in a global day of prayer and fasting for peace in Syria, the Middle East and the world.

“Violence and war lead only to death, they speak of death! Violence and war are the language of death!” Francis said at the midpoint of a five-hour prayer service. Police and the Vatican estimated a crowd of about 100,000 in St Peter’s Square.

The United States and France are considering military action against Syria to punish President Bashar al-Assad for an August 21 chemical weapons attack near Damascus that killed hundreds of people. Assad’s government denies responsibility.

A number of people held up Syrian flags and placards reading “Hands off Syria,” and “Obama, you don’t have a dream, you have a nightmare”. But they were not allowed into St Peter’s Square, in keeping with the pope’s intention for a religious service.

The service was punctuated by music, prayer, the reciting of the rosary and long periods of silence in which the participants were asked to meditate on the need for peace to vanquish the destruction of war.

“We have perfected our weapons, our conscience has fallen asleep, and we have sharpened our ideas to justify ourselves. As if it were normal, we continue to sow destruction, pain, death!” said Francis, who wore his simple white cassock instead of ceremonial robes to the service.

“At this point I ask myself: Is it possible to change direction? Can we get out of this spiral of sorrow and death? Can we learn once again to walk and live in the ways of peace?”

He then asked “each one of us, from the least to the greatest, including those called to govern nations, to respond: Yes, we want it!”

When he announced the prayer vigil last Sunday, Francis asked Catholics around the world to pray and fast and invited members of other religious to take part in any way they saw fit in the hope that a wider war could be averted.

Dozens of vigils were held across France on Saturday evening. On the Montmartre hill in Paris, several hundred Catholics prayed and fasted inside the Sacre Coeur Basilica.

“If we respond to violence with violence we’ll have World War Three, we’ll never have peace,” Odile Bernard, a 61-year-old Parisian teacher holding an olive branch, told Reuters.

In New York, Lennie Tallud, a clinical lab scientist visiting St Patrick’s Cathedral, said the thought of military action against Syria was “very scary”. Asked whether she thought prayers would make a difference, she said: “Definitely, for sure. No doubt. I think it would – 100 percent.”

Services were held by Christians around the world, including in Jerusalem, Assisi and Milan in Italy, in Boston and Baghdad.

MUSLIMS PRAY WITH POPE

Yaha Pallavicini, a leader of Italy’s Muslim community, attended the prayer service with other Muslims.

“Praying for the intention of peace is something that can only help fraternity and, God willing, avoid more war,” he told Reuters. “As Muslims who want peace we have to work so that the values of faith and dialogue prevail over the destruction of peoples.”

In his address, the pope, who for most of the service sat silently behind an altar on the steps of the largest church in Christendom, stressed the power of prayer to change the world.

“This evening, I ask the Lord that we Christians, and our brothers and sisters of other religions, and every man and woman of good will, cry out forcefully: violence and war are never the way to peace!” he said.

“Let everyone be moved to look into the depths of his or her conscience and listen to that word which says: Leave behind the self-interest that hardens your heart, overcome the indifference that makes your heart insensitive towards others, conquer your deadly reasoning, and open yourself to dialogue and reconciliation,” he said.

His words struck a personal chord with Marina Verkotenh, a pilgrim from Russia. “I think it’s very important for all the people to unite here at this square and to bring together all our forces to unite and to pray, and also to bring attention to all the people who decide this question, these important questions about war and peace,” she said.

At least one senior U.S. clergyman publicly expressed reservations about President Barack Obama’s campaign for military action against Syria.

“As Congress debates a resolution authorising military force in Syria, I urge you instead to support U.S. leadership for peace. Only dialogue can save lives and bring about peace in Syria,” Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski said in a message sent to U.S. senators from Florida and to his representative in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Blessed are the Peacemakers.” Keep up the great work Francis (Francesco di Pietro d’Assisi)

Let’s face it guys. Any Human who promotes any War as a means to peace is either an idiot or a complete idiot. “What if they threw a war and nobody came?” Let’s make sure the only ones fighting wars from now are are the Politicians/Senate who want to start them. Do not support the Warmongers. They belong in the past.

Is Atheism The Religion Of Communism? The New Global Religion Is Here.

Let us begin by stating that there are no “Communist” countries in this World nor have there ever been any. The population of this Globe have been deceived by those who opt to use this word as in reality those countries that label themselves as “Communist” are actually socially engineered Capitalism -their economies all rely on manufactured currency-. There is only one Communist Party on this World and this is the New Global Communist Party. Under the regimes of these “Faux Communist” countries the aspect of organized religion was replaced with atheism. Atheism was meant to become the unifying factor -the new religion- but it failed to ignite the population in harmony and resulted in driving these organized faiths underground. We see this so fast when we examine the Soviet states and how rapidly these organized faiths suddenly emerged.

Under the New Global Communist Party, we have created a new “unorganized religion” that is based upon ancient philosophy and physics. This is the “Unorganized Path of Light”. After the New Global Communist State becomes manifest and assumes control of the Globe, this new “unorganized religion” will become the new Global Religion that will unite all faiths on this Globe.

Please do familiarize yourself with this “Unorganized Path of Light”, make copies of this book and distribute it and share it with your friends and loved ones.

The Website and book are HERE.

You may also purchase a copy if you wish a fine quality copy HERE.

Please do feel free to explore that which is meant – along with the New Global Communist Party – to unite the population of the Earth in Unity.
