Jesuit Father Augusto Zampini Davies – the director of development and faith at the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development since its creation in 2016 – says caring for justice, peace, inclusion, solidarity, healthcare and the environment are all Gospel values.
Vatican Cardinal Peter Turkson was at Davos, urging the movers and shakers of the world to remember the poor, and shortly beforehand he told Crux he “cannot justify” the language U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly used to describe Africa.
Pope Francis told a gathering of world leaders, which was scheduled to include U.S. President Donald Trump, that the world “cannot remain silent in the face of the suffering of millions of people whose dignity is wounded, nor can we continue to move forward as if the spread of poverty and injustice has no cause.”
Although Francis and Donald Trump have plenty of reasons to clash, the evidence shows that pope and president could still meet halfway.
