Pope Francis’ new encyclical speaks for poor, ignored

Pope Francis’ new encyclical speaks for poor, ignored”

"The fragility of world systems in the face of the pandemic has demonstrated that not everything can be resolved by market freedom", he said.

In his third encyclical, the most authoritative of the papal teachings, published Sunday, Francis said the pandemic hit as he was preparing the document, and it has shown the world's inability to work together.

The 45,000 word document, titled "Fratelli Tutti" meaning "Brothers All" or "Brothers and Sisters All", indicated the pope's belief that the pandemic has shown that a major overhaul of global economic systems is needed, as the crisis has disproportionately affected the poor in countries including the U.S., Brazil, and the United Kingdom; revealed the divide between low-income workers all over the world who have had limited access to government aid and professionals who are able to work from home; and caused the "most unequal" recession in modern U.S. history.

This is the pope's fourth visit to the city of St. Francis.

Free copies of the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano with the front page about Pope Francis' encyclical "All Brothers" are distributed by volunteers. For weeks, he has preached of the need to use the pandemic as an opportunity to reform global economic, political and social structures to ensure that the world's most marginalized people aren't left even farther behind after the coronavirus passes.

The Pope also questioned why the Catholic Church took so long to unequivocally condemn slavery.

"It is very hard nowadays to invoke the rational criteria elaborated in earlier centuries to speak of the possibility of a 'just war, '" Francis wrote in the most controversial new element of the encyclical.

In an encyclical on the theme of human fraternity, published on Sunday, the pope also said private property can not be considered an absolute right in all cases where some lived extravagantly while others had nothing. His first visit was in 2013.

He added that free-market capitalism "reproduces itself" by resorting to the magic theories of "spillover" or "trickle" as the only solution to societal problems.

So-called "trickle-down" economics fails to create the promised "spillover" that resolves inequality, giving rise to "new forms of violence threatening the fabric of society", Francis said.

"The right to private property can only be considered a secondary natural right, derived from the principle of the universal destination of created goods", Francis said. In this case, "Fratelli Tutti" is a quote from the "Admonitions", the guidelines penned by St. Francis in the 13th century.

Ahead of its release, the title, Fratelli Tutti, which translates to Brothers All in English, sparked controversy in the English-speaking world, with some Catholics saying it is not sufficiently gender inclusive. St. Francis is known as "The Little Poor One" because he renounced his wealthy family to serve the needy.
