Vatican City, May 25, 2013 / 09:15 am
Speaking to an international group dedicated to promoting education of the Church's social teaching, Pope Francis called for a new economic view that places the human person at the center.
"We must return to the centrality of man, to a more ethical view of business and human relations, without the fear of losing something," the Pope said on May 25.
Pope Francis addressed members of the Fondazione Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice at the end of their three-day conference at the Vatican. Founded by Blessed Pope John Paul II in 1993, the organization is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
The Holy Father greeted the members of the international gathering and thanked them for their efforts to promote a greater understanding of the Church's social doctrine.
