Pope Francis on Saturday, November 21, pleaded with young Catholic entrepreneurs to create a new but just economic model that could save a mistreated planet while helping the poor and the excluded.

The Catholic Pope Francis made this plea  via a video message beamed to a virtual meeting of young business leaders where He urged them to make major changes to global economic relationships.

“You recognize the urgent need for a different economic narrative,”

“The present world system is certainly unsustainable from a number of points of view and is harming our sister earth, so gravely maltreated and despoiled, together with the poor and the excluded in our midst,”

“Once the present health crisis (corona virus disease) has passed, the worst reaction would be to fall even more deeply into feverish consumerism,”

The Argentinian-born pope has regularly taken capitalism to task, accusing it of indifference to social inequality and a party to the depletion of the planet’s resources.

He pressed the young business leaders and academics from 115 countries to “give birth to an economic culture” that inspired trust and created resources “that will enlighten minds, warm hearts” and give “all young people, with no one excluded — a vision of the future.”
