- Homily, May 25, 2014, Bethlehem, Pope Francis
Social media has, in many parts of the developed world have become a very popular way of communicating. It has opened the world to us in ways that were never thought of before. This is not always the case for a large portion of society. We hear about how the world’s poor are exploited, or how they lack the basic necessities of life. Human trafficking, discrimination or terrorism is a daily reality. It is good to know of these situations. Knowing is not enough. We need to learn how to respond to this crisis of humanity. Our faith calls us to respond with compassion and conviction.
