Pope Francis at Lampedusa:
“God asks each one of us: Where is the blood of your brother that cries
out to me? Today no one in the world feels
responsible for this; we have lost the sense of fraternal
“The culture of well-being, that makes us think of
ourselves, that makes us insensitive to the cries of others, that makes
us live in soap bubbles, that are beautiful but are nothing, are
illusions of futility, of the transient, that brings indifference to
others, that brings even the globalization of indifference,” he
continued. “In this world of globalization we have fallen into a
globalization of indifference. We are accustomed to the suffering of
others, it doesn’t concern us, it’s none of our business.”
