Pope Francis sends message to leaders at the G20

13 November 2014

POPE Francis in a letter addressed to Prime Minister Tony Abbott warned that a “mindset in which individuals are ultimately discarded will never achieve peace or justice”.

The letter was sent on the occasion of the upcoming G20 summit, which will be held this weekend in Brisbane. The Holy Father said the meeting would provide an opportunity for the world to appreciate “Oceania’s significant contributions to the management of world affairs”.

The Pope said the upcoming meeting came at a crucial time when the demands of steady employment needed to be met by fair taxation and transparency in the financial sector. He also called on the heads of state and governments “not to forget that many lives are at stake behind these political and technical discussions”.
