Pope Francis – Don’t Postpone Critical Global Decisions

Last September Pope Francis visited the United States and he was truly inspirational.

After coming across some notes I took from his speech I thought it might be useful to review and post them.  Our world is struggling with many problems, especially terrorism. We need a world leader to inspire and motivate us to take care of one another and our planet.

Here are some of the highlights from his speech:

‘The fragmented world leads to battles to defend our conflicting interests.’

‘Don’t postpone critical global decisions. Especially involving those who are excluded, those who are in need’.

Avoid beauracratic exercises of drawing up ‘plans’ but not acting’.

‘Everyone has a responsibility to the planet’.

‘Examine your conscience.’

‘Pray for those unwilling to govern’.

We need someone to lead the United States and the world on a planet torn by hatred, greed, poverty and pollution.

I am praying that such a leader exists and reveals him/herself.

Thank you.
