A quote from Pope Francis:
"The world constantly watches us, believers, observing our attitude to our common home and towards human rights; it also requires us to collaborate with men and women of goodwill, who do not profess any religion, so as to offer effective responses to the scourges of our world, such as war and hunger, the poverty that afflicts millions of people, the environmental crisis, violence, corruption and moral degradation, the crisis of the family and of the economy, and above all the lack of hope. Today's world suffers and is in need of our help. Do people realise that this is light years away from any form of proselytism?"
— Symposium of the Organisation of American States and the Buenos Aires Institute for Interreligious Dialogue, Sept. 8, 2016
