THE ECONOMY OF FRANCIS
On May 1st, day of the International Communist, Pope Francis signed a letter, which L’Osservatore Romano only published on May 12, 2019. In it he summoned young entrepreneurs and economists from all religions and all parts of the world to attend a meeting in Assisi on March 26-28, 2020. He invited them to join together in an effort to launch a new economy, which he names the Economy of Francis.
Francis invites young economists and entrepreneurs to join his pact to change the economy
A first reaction to this name is one of surprise: Why is the Pope naming this initiative after himself? Doesn’t it look pretentious?
Pope Francis has an escape: He is naming it after St. Francis of Assisi, and he will be meeting with those young people on the date when St. Francis divested himself of his bourgeois clothing and entered a new life, the life of Franciscan poverty. So, the name is ambivalent: Although many people will understand that the Economy of Francis is the economy of Pope Francis, he can safeguard his humility by saying that he is preaching an economy based on Franciscan poverty.
It is a Jesuit mirror trick to confuse what will actually inspire this “new” economy. At any rate, we can clear up this confusion by stating that the Economy of Francis is how Pope Francis imagines an economy based on St. Francis of Assisi should be.
What are the principal characteristics of this economy?
I will translate from the Italian text of the letter in L’Osservatore Romano:
- The event’s goal is “to make a pact to change today’s economy and give a soul to the economy
- of tomorrow”;
- The pretense for the name: St. Francis returns his clothing to his father to follow a new path Assisi, which is “the symbol and the message of a humanism of fraternity” [fraternity is a Freemasonic principle] was chosen as a place “to inspire a new economy”;
- St. Francis’ “choice to embrace poverty gave rise to a vision of economics that remains most timely”;
- This economy “gives hope to our future and brings benefits … to mankind as a whole. A vision that is also necessary for the fate of the entire planet, our common home, our sister Mother Earth…”; [Mother Earth is a pagan principle]
- “The safeguarding of the environment cannot be dissociated from ensuring justice for the poor and finding answers to the structural problems of the global economy”;
- “We need to correct models of growth incapable of guaranteeing respect for the environment…”;
- It is necessary “to set in motion a new economic model, the fruit of a culture of communion based on fraternity and equality”; [Freemasonic ideas]
- “The environment urgently demands a sound economy and a sustainable development that can heal its wounds and assure us of a dignified future”;
- “Given this urgency, each one of us is called to rethink his or her mental and moral priorities to bring them into greater conformity with God’s Commandments and the demands of the common good” [Socialism];
- “Dearest young people, I know you can hear in your hearts the ever more anguished cry of the earth and its poor…”;
- “Your organizations are workshops of hope for creating new ways of understanding the economy, … for combating the culture of waste, … and for proposing new styles of life” [New World Order?];
- “That is why I would like to meet you in Assisi, so that we can promote together, through a common pact, a process of global change.”
These are the basic guidelines of Pope Bergoglio’s letter.
Francis, at an Sustainable Development Goals conference, striving to unite all religions
[...] Once we are aware of Francis’ adhesion to Liberation Theology, we see that what counts for him is to destroy Capitalism in society, and Monarchy and Sacrality in the Church. Any other reasons appear to be nothing more than pretexts to reach these goals.
