But as for the existence of high youth unemployment, and its deleterious effects on the global economy, that is true. And more importantly, the global economy does rely on war-making to ensure its short-term stability.
So, friends, please get past the youth unemployment comment and get to what he points out regarding the throw-away culture of death. And remember: if you are concerned that the Vatican has become far too cozy with one-world globalists (and maybe you should be), that coziness would put Francis in possession of some knowledge of the precariousness of the system that he says is near collapse.
Collapse. That term, if used accurately, is not a pleasant term.
Now, in the article, His Holiness says that the center of any economy must be man. Not money. That is true, in a purely relative way, between the concept of man vs. money. However, the real center of any economy, as in any government or society, is Christ. Christ the King.
And here we have the central problem of Vatican II. Is man the center? Or is the Man, the real Man, Christ, the God-Man, the Center? It depends on what you mean by man. And hence, all the problems of the ambiguity purposely bred in the last fifty years.
Truth mixed with enough ambiguity to prevent the Church from necessary action, clarity and effectiveness.
We all need a return to Christ. You, me. Governments. The Church and Her leaders. Read the Pope's remarks. There is much to ponder here.
From the UK Daily Mail:
Pope Francis claims global economy is close to collapse and describes youth unemployment rates as an ‘atrocity’ in damning message
