Address of His Holiness Pope Francis to the Members of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism
On November 11, 2019, His Holiness Pope Francis met at the Vatican with the founding members of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism to offer words of encouragement as they launched a new organization with the mission of extending the opportunities and benefits of a strong economic system to all people.
“Your efforts remind us that those who engage in business and economic life are in fact possessed, as bears repeating, of a noble vocation, one that serves the common good by striving to increase the goods of this world and make them more accessible to all. In the end, it is not simply a matter of ‘having more’, but ‘being more’. What is needed is a fundamental renewal of hearts and minds so that the human person may always be placed at the center of social, cultural and economic life.”
