Don't sacrifice justice and family for efficiency, Pope tells business leaders

Pope Francis met Friday with leaders in business and civil society, telling them not to get carried away by wealth and the demands of the global market, but rather to promote justice by eliminating the root causes of inequality.

“We must ask the market not only to be efficient in the production of wealth and in the assurance of sustainable growth, but also to be at the service of integral human development,” the Pope said Oct. 20. “We cannot sacrifice on the altar of efficiency – the 'golden calf' of our times – fundamental values such as democracy, justice, freedom, the family, and creation,” he said, explaining that instead, “we must seek to 'civilize the market' with a view to an ethic friendly to man and his environment.”

Language that speaks at the level of the soul

Thirty years ago, the American educator Allan Bloom wrote a book entitled “The Closing of the American Mind.” This was his thesis: In our secularized world today, our language is becoming ever-more empirical, one-dimensional and devoid of depth, and this is closing our minds by stripping us of the deeper meanings inside our own experience. For Bloom, how we name an experience determines to a large extent its meaning.

Twenty years earlier, in the rather provocative essay “The Triumph of the Therapeutic,” Philip Rieff had already suggested something similar. For Rieff, we live our lives under a certain “symbolic hedge” — namely, a language and set of symbols within which we interpret our experience. And that hedge can be high or low and, consequently so, too, will be the meaning we derive from any experience. Experience can be rich or shallow, depending on the language by which we interpret it.

Jackie Chan stars in dark, joyless film ‘The Foreigner’

There are few career transitions that are more public than those undertaken by movie stars. Time inevitably forces child actors into adult roles, or forces once young performers to deal with the passage into middle age and beyond on an incredibly public scale, magnified on the giant screens of multiplexes worldwide.

Sadly, age has even affected Jackie Chan, one of the most giddily joyful performers ever to grace the silver screen. For the past 40 years, he has used a combination of comedy and amazing stunt work to achieve superstardom, but he’s been largely missing from American theaters since “Rush Hour 3” in 2007.

Pope promises to send special message to FAO meeting in Ethiopia

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis marked World Food Day this week with a visit to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) where he called on world leaders and policymakers to work for a concrete, practical consensus to prevent the most tragic effects of climate change hitting the weakest and most defenseless.

“We need to change our lifestyles, the use of resources, production and consumption patterns,” the Pope said, and he decried what he described as the “negligence” that is damaging the “delicate balances of the ecosystems” and the “arrogance of manipulating and controlling” the planet.

World Methodist Council: dialogue must reach local level

(Vatican Radio) Methodist and Catholic theologians are meeting just outside Rome this week, marking the 50th anniversary of the first ecumenical dialogue group following the Second Vatican Council. That first session of the Methodist-Roman Catholic International Commission was held in the hill town of Ariccia in October 1967.

Pope Francis met with members of the current Commission on Thursday, together with leaders of the World Methodist Council, saying that half a century of dialogue has set us free from estrangement and suspicion and helped us to recognize each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

‘Civilize the market’ for common good, care of creation, pope says

Pope Francis said on Friday that in societies where profit is allowed to be the only concern, "democracy tends to become a plutocracy, where inequality and the exploitation of the planet grows." The pontiff said political action "must be placed truly at the service of the human person, the common good and respect for nature."

Myanmar cardinal: ‘The pope will come to heal the wounds of the country’

Cardinal Charles Maung Bo of Yangon said Pope Francis will likely “encourage good steps” during his upcoming visit to Myanmar, and said that “as a Church, we want to affirm the intensity of human suffering” experienced by the Rohingya because “this problem has been there for last 60 years, and most intensely since 1982, when an unjust citizenship law passed.”
