Pope calls entrepreneurs, businessmen to embrace simplicity
Pope Francis on Monday received a group of young Catholic business leaders and entrepreneurs from France, who are in Rome to take part in a conference entitled a “Journey for the Common Good”. The conference aims at promoting Catholic social teaching in people’s personal and professional lives.
He also highlighted the importance of ecological conversion, and recommended his own encyclical Laudato sí to nourish their “prayer and reflection”. Although cultural change takes time, Pope Francis said that businessmen and entrepreneurs have “an essential role to play” in making modest, but concrete changes “to educate the world of work to a new style”.
Journey for the Common Good
The Journey for the Common Good is taking place in Rome over the course of three days, with meetings and reflections focused on the “vocation” of Christian business leaders and entrepreneurs in light of the social doctrine of the Church. The Cardinal Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, and the Ambassador of France to the Holy See, Elizabeth Beton-Delègue, are among those scheduled to address the participants.

Associated Press reporting found the deluge of suits could surpass anything the nation’s clergy sexual abuse crisis has seen before, with potentially more than 5,000 new cases and payouts topping $4 billion.
