Spirituality: Pope Francis

We have created a 'disposable' culture, which is no longer simply about exploitation and oppression, but something new. This culture of prosperity deadens us; we are thrilled if the market offers us something new to purchase; and in the meantime all those lives stunted for lack of opportunity seem a mere spectacle; they fail to move us. In this system, which tends to devour everything that stands in the way of increased profits; whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenseless before the interests of a deified market.
