Pope Francis on Monday called on entrepreneurs to be “prophets“ and to continue to transform the economy.
“We are living in an era of notorious economic and social imbalances,” the pope told members of two Spanish associations of entrepreneurs at the Vatican’s Apostolic Palace on Oct. 17.
It was “urgent to propose a suitable economy to contribute to solving the great problems we are experiencing on a global level,” he added.
Quoting from a passage on economic and social life in a key document of Vatican II, Pope Francis said: “While a few enjoy very great power of choice, the majority are deprived of almost all possibility of acting on their own initiative and responsibility, and often subsist in living and working conditions unworthy of the human person.”
