Pope's quotes: Today’s global society

A quote from Pope Francis:

"We need to move from a liquid economy prepared to use corruption as a means of obtaining profits to a social economy that guarantees access to land and lodging through labor. Labor is in fact the setting in which individuals and communities bring into play 'many aspects of life: creativity, planning for the future, developing talents, living out values, relating to others, giving glory to God. It follows that, in the reality of today’s global society, it is essential that we continue to prioritize the role of access to steady employment for everyone, no matter the limited interests of business and dubious economic reasoning.’ ”

-- Address at reception of Charlemagne Prize, May 6, 2016
