Pope highlights dangers of globalisation
Comment Email Print
 Pope Benedict spoke about the dangers of globalisation when he received Jan Eliasson, president of the 60th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations and foreign minister of Sweden on Saturday. Joaquin Navarro-Valls, director of the Holy See press office said: "The central theme of the discussions was the process of globalisation, of which some of the shortcomings - particularly due to the scant recognition of the religious dimension - were highlighted. Without the contribution of religious values, even human rights could lose consistency. "Particular emphasis was laid upon the need to overcome contrasts and build bridges so that all aspects of globalisation can come together for the common good and the peaceful coexistence of all peoples. "Attention was also given to the contribution that the meeting between religions can make towards peace and solidarity among all inhabitants of the planet." Source: VIS
