The world will not overcome the current crisis if only big businesses, financial institutions and the powerful have a voice, Pope Francis said.
Pope Francis expressed his sorrow after the murder of an Italian priest who was remembered for his care and concern for migrants and refugees.
Human beings must change their relationship with nature and view it not as an “object for unscrupulous use and abuse” but as a gift they are charged by God to care for and protect, Pope Francis said.
The common good — and not political or economic gain — should be at the heart of the race to find a vaccine for COVID-19, Pope Francis said.
The pleasure of seeing other people face to face and not “screen to screen” as COVID-19 restrictions ease clearly demonstrates that people are social beings and need one another, Pope Francis said.
During his first general audience with faithful since the COVID-19 coronavirus brought them to a halt in March, Pope Francis issued a lengthy appeal for Lebanon as it nears the one-month anniversary of a massive explosion that rocked the port of Beirut, leaving many homeless and injured.
