From Vatican Radio:
of the main causes for concern, Pope Francis pointed out, include the
weakening of family and social ties; decreasing populations; the
prevalence of a way of thinking which values profit more than work;
insufficient attention given to younger generations and their formation,
which jeopardizes a peaceful and secure future for society.
In such a
moment of crisis he said, “there is therefore an urgent need to foster,
especially among young people, a new way of thinking with regard to the
responsibility of politics,” one where “believers and non-believers can
work together to promote a society where injustice can be overcome, and
each person can contribute to the common good according to his or her
dignity, and make the most of his or her abilities.”
