POPE FRANCIS: TO ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP WELBY, "GIVING A VOICE TO THE CRY OF THE POOR"” “” “

"Among our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor, so that they are not abandoned to the laws of an economy that seems at times to treat people as mere consumers". These words were addressed by Pope Francis to the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, on his first official visit to the Vatican today. Justin Welby, who was elected as the 150th Archbishop of Canterbury last February, is an expert in economics, having worked as an executive in the oil industry for 11 years. Like Pope Francis, he is committed to social justice and fighting poverty. Two days ago, addressing a group of managers and politicians, he even cited Benedict XVI’s Encyclical Caritas in Veritate. As he received Welby at the Vatican today, the Pope also spoke of their shared commitment to "greater social justice, to an economic system that is at the service of man and promotes the common good".” ” ” ” ” “
