Vatican City, May 30, 2022 / 07:15 am
The world is facing an “escalation of evil,” Pope Francis told members of a Jewish service organization on Monday, but there is an “antidote.”
The pope told a delegation from B’nai B’rith International at the Vatican on May 30 that people around the world faced insecurity due to “many conflicts and dangerous forms of extremism.”
“In our time, dear friends, world peace is also threatened by forms of particularism and nationalism, driven by selfish interests and unbridled greed,” he said.
“This increases the risk, in the end, of even greater contempt for human dignity and rights.”
