Pope renews praise for cooperatives

May 05, 2016

In a video message to a conference sponsored by the Confederation of Italian Cooperatives, Pope Francis recalled the themes of an earlier address to the organization and praised cooperatives for promoting brotherhood, “the resource that the world has most need of today.”

In his May 4 message, the Pope said that the migrant crisis, terrorism, and the global economy have made the themes of his previous address more timely than ever. He also called upon cooperatives to work closely with parishes and dioceses and to reach out to persons in need.
