Pope Francis Warns The Global Economy Is Near Collapse

Since Pope Francis has warned “The global economic system is near collapse,” it is almost certain that we will see great confusion.  I think that those who have prepared for it might feel that “The time has finally come”, but many people would be taken by surprise and get confused because they do not knowing what is going to happen, as shown in this article.
Although I don’t know exactly when such day will come, please never fail to stockpile food.

(Summary)
In an interview with the Huffington Post on June 13, Pope Francis warned that the global economy was near collapse.

The pontiff said: “We can no longer sustain an economic system that to survive has to idolize money and make war.  We are excluding an entire generation to sustain a system that is not good.

He was concerned about youth unemployment and denounced the influence of war and the military on the global economy.

We discard a whole generation to maintain an economic system that no longer endures (an economic system of the big power to maintain economy by making war).  Since we cannot wage the Third World War, we make regional wars.  We make and sell arms to maintain our economy.  As a result, the balance sheets of the idolatrous economies – the big world economies that sacrifice man at the feet of the idol of moneyare obviously cleaned up,” the Pope said.

According to the Huffington Post, Pope Francis is gaining a reputation for pointed comments on the global economy.  The Pope commemorated Thursday’s kick-off game of the World Cup – a global tournament that has so far cost host nation Brazil at least $15 billion and sparked violent protest by the country’s disenfranchised poor – with this message to his 4.14 million Twitter followers.
