Stand with Francis


To the editor,

To Pope Francis …

We need an economy that is founded on the idea that not only are we our sisters and brothers’ keeper; they are ours. We must go beyond charity, to creating a moral economy in which we eliminate poverty through full employment. Jobs that are designed to meet the real needs of real people are our credo. Social service and community, and not wealth, property, profit, power and narcissism is the foundation of real democracy, compassion and love. All people on this planet are one nation and each is a part of the earth. If this is the message I stand with him and by him.

 Michael Joseph Francisconi
