Pope Francis, in address to Irish prime minister, laments sexual abuse, abortion
August 27, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: As he began his apostolic visit to Ireland on the occasion of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Pope Francis decried sexual abuse and asked, “Can we say that the goal of creating economic or financial prosperity leads of itself to a more just and equitable social order? Or could it be that the growth of a materialistic ‘throwaway culture’ has in fact made us increasingly indifferent to the poor and to the most defenseless members of our human family, including the unborn, deprived of the very right to life?”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
