Pope Francis affirms that pandemic undermined political action

Vatican City, Sep 4 (Prensa Latina) Pope Francis affirmed here today that with its long aftermath of isolation and social hypertension, the pandemic inevitably undermined, too, political action.

During an audience with members of the ‘Leaders for Peace Foundation’, the Pope pointed out that this crisis can become an opportunity to promote ‘better politics’.

Francis indicated that without this type of politics it is impossible ‘to develop a world community, capable of creating fraternity based on peoples and nations that live social friendship’, as he himself expressed in his encyclical ‘Brothers and Sisters All’.

In this sense, he specified that he was referring to a policy that contributes as ‘architecture and craftsmanship of peace’, because, he asserted, ‘to build peace, both are necessary’.

The architecture in which the different institutions of society intervene and the craftsmanship that must involve everyone, including those sectors that are often excluded or hidden, he stressed.
