Just listened to the Holy Father’s announcement about a big global conference in 2020:
Pope Francis has announced he is hosting an initiative for a “Global Pact” to create a “new humanism.” The global event, set to take place at the Vatican on May 14, 2020, is themed Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance.
The Pope is inviting representatives of the main religions, international organizations and various humanitarian institutions, as well as key figures from the world of politics, economics and academia, and prominent athletes, scientists and sociologists to sign a “Global Pact on Education” so as to “hand on to younger generations a united and fraternal common home.” Pope Francis is calling for the creation of an “educational village,” in which “all people, according to their respective roles, share the task of forming a network of open, human relationships.”
Here’s my question for anyone who cares to comment: If you didn’t know who was saying these words, would your first assumption be that the speaker was:
- George Sorros;
- The Secretary General of the United Nations; or
- The Vicar of Christ?
I’d love to hear your comments!
The source for the above excerpts is, of course, the one and only LifeSite News. Well-done to you, as always, Mr. Westen!
