Pope's quotes: A bridge that unites

A quote from Pope Francis:

"A climate of encounter, of a 'bridge' that unites and and that is a challenge for this world, a world that always runs the risk of becoming atomized, of separating. And when peoples separate, families separate, friends separate, and in separation one can sow only enmity and even hatred. Instead, when people unite there is social friendship, fraternal friendship; and there is a culture of encounter, that defends us from any type of throwaway culture."

-- Address to participants of Scholas Occurrentes, May 30, 2016
