Nice of him to address the "world".

HOWEVER, someone needs to remind him that he is leader of the CATHOLIC CHURCH and he should focus his influence on the church and leave world affairs to world leaders.

I think that the pope should embrace Communism!. Embrace it with God. In the former Soviet Union, they had Communism but without God. Communism is a fair and just economic system!. After all, Jesus practiced it!!!. On the other hand, Capitalism is a cold and cruel economic system, this is based on Stealing!. With capitalism, everyone takes from one another. Capitalism is where when the rich get richer, the poor has to get poorer!. Where the rich prowl over us poor and will not give us poor a opportunity for us to better ourselves. We should have Communism with God behind it. Like I said, Communism is a fair and just system and I am sure God would embrace it if he is brought into the picture. Since God is fair and just.

..... I can quite understand it that pope Francis would propagate among all the members of his belief system the requirements of saint Francis of Assisi. However there are probably some radical members who would therefore want to kill pope Francis.
..... The safe thing for him would be not to meddle in politics if he doesn't want politicians to meddle in his belief system.
