Praiseworthy, necessary and can be the pledge of something better for future generations; set aside partisan and ideological interests for the common good. Support and Prayers of all the faithful for the UN to render an effective service to all humanity.
I know the context was vastly different, and so required a different rhetoric, but it sure felt like this was the big boy talk.
Accept transcendence and reject an all-powerful elite; Francis against Prometheanism, not against science/technology when used for the common good.
Another kind of war; accompanied by trafficking in persons, money laundering, arms trade, child exploitation and other forms of corruption
People in the “majority religion” have been forced to give up their places of worship, their property, their heritage, and choose between slavery and fleeing.
Clearly opposed to unilateralist action in international affairs.
Must work for elimination of all Nukes–complete prohibition.
Call for sincere application apart from instrumental use when in particular interests; an Augustinian view of the ways in which law can serve both good and evil depending upon the will of those using it.
Must work tirelessly to avoid war. Rule of law, tireless recourse to mediation, arbitration, negotiation.
Apart from this, programs become ideological colonization, idle chatter or worse
We do not create ourselves; we do not have final word;
Misuse of creation when we no longer recognize any instance above ourselves and see nothing else but ourselves. Must recognize a moral law written in human nature itself; respect for life in all stages and dimensions.
