Pope Denounces ‘Greed Looking for Easy Gain’

Stephen Cook: I’m not Catholic, nor do I belong to any religious
denomination, but I am currently fascinated in what the ‘overlighted’
Pope Francis is saying and doing. No, he hasn’t cured the Catholic
Church or the world of all its ills and scandals but, day by day, and
especially over Easter, he seems to be chipping away at both the global
subconscious of his 1.1 billion strong flock – and many beyond.

Pope Francis Uses Easter Address to Denounce ‘Greed Looking for Easy Gain’

Pope appears to put uncaring capitalism on a par with the armed
conflicts traditionally deplored in the annual Urbi et Orbi address

By John Hooper in Rome, The Guardian – March 31, 2013

Pope Francis gave an unexpected twist to the annual pontifical appeal
for peace on Sunday when he used it to denounce “greed looking for easy

In his Urbi et Orbi address, which translates as “to the city [of
Rome] and to the world”, the Pope – who has sought to make himself the
tribune of the poor, disabled and disadvantaged – appeared to put
uncaring capitalism in the same category as the armed conflicts his
predecessors have traditionally, and forlornly, deplored on Easter Day.

Since being elected on 13 March, Francis has repeatedly stressed
concern for the poor and others on the margins of society, and he
returned to what is clearly emerging as the central theme of his papacy
on Sunday. He said he wanted his Easter message of hope and resurrection
“to go out to every house and every family, especially where the
suffering is greatest, in hospitals [and] in prisons”.

Last week, the Pope visited a youth detention centre in Rome where he
washed the feet of 12 inmates as part of the traditional rite
representing Jesus’s final act of humility to his disciples.

Francis’s denunciation of greed came after he moved among the crowd
in St Peter’s Square in the popemobile. He kissed babies and children,
held a severely disabled young man in his arms and accepted the gift of a
football shirt of his favourite team, Argentina’s San Lorenzo “Saints”.
His longest stop was for a disabled child who was lifted into the
popemobile and whom he hugged and kissed repeatedly.

According to the Vatican’s estimate, some 250,000 people crammed into
the square and the broad avenue that stretches away from the Vatican to
the river Tiber for the Pope’s first Easter Sunday mass. By the time
Francis, wearing cream-coloured vestments, climbed aboard the open and
unprotected Mercedes pontiff-carrier, the square in front of
Michelangelo’s basilica was a sea of colour.

In addition to the spring flowers on either side of the shallow steps
down which the popemobile bumped into the square, there were the flags
of countries from Albania to Zambia. The light blue, white and gold of
Argentina’s flag was well represented and the Pope’s face lit up in
recognition every time he identified a group of his compatriots in the
jubilant crowd of tourists, pilgrims and Romans.

In the final event of the gruelling timetable that Easter sets for
the leaders of the Roman Catholic church, the 76-year-old Francis’s
voice occasionally sounded weak. He was, however, visibly energised by
his tour of the square and his delivery of the Urbi et Orbi address was
forceful and at times impassioned.

He appealed for peace in the Middle East, saying that the conflict
between the Israelis and Palestinians had “lasted all too long” and
called for an end to violence in Iraq and “dear Syria”, the birthplace
of Gregory III, the last Pope from a non-European country. Francis also
urged peace in Africa, specifically citing Mali, Nigeria, the Democratic
Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic and Nigeria. He also
made a special call for an end to the standoff on the Korean peninsula.

He ended his address by calling, with growing intensity, for “peace
in the whole world, still divided by greed looking for easy gain,
wounded by the selfishness which threatens human life and the family,
selfishness that continues in human trafficking, the most extensive form
of slavery in this 21st century. Peace to the whole world, torn apart
by violence linked to drug trafficking and by the iniquitous
exploitation of natural resources”.
