CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis made his remarks in a video message to pariticipants in a webinar for the World Day of the Sick.

“Individualism and indifference to others are forms of selfishness that unfortunately end up being amplified in the society of consumerist wellbeing and economic liberalism; and the consequent inequalities are found even in the field of healthcare, where some enjoy so-called ‘excellence’ and many others struggle to access basic healthcare,” the Pope said.

“To cure this ‘social’ virus, the antidote is the culture of fraternity, based on the awareness that we are all equal as human persons, all equal as children of one God,” he added.
