In a message to the global delegates of the 2020 World Economic Forum, Pope Francis stressed the duty of governments and businesses to place the good of the human person above power or profit.
"The overriding consideration, never to be forgotten, is that we are all members of the one human family," he said in the Jan. 21 message.
"The moral obligation to care for one another flows from this fact, as does the correlative principle of placing the human person, rather than the mere pursuit of power or profit, at the very centre of public policy," he stated.
The pope decried views which treat others as a means to an end and are lacking in solidarity and charity, resulting in injustice.
