On his return flight from Kazakhstan to Italy, Pope Francis agreed that the West is decaying.
Pope Francis was asked whether he thinks “the West is in a state of perdition, threatened by the loss of its values?” He responded that “it is true that the West, in general, is not at the highest level of exemplarity right now.”
Read his sobering message about the state of the West today:
“It is not a child at their first communion, at all.
What has the West lost, to forget to welcome?
The West has taken wrong paths; we think for example of the social injustice that is among us.
With this demographic winter, where are we going? The West is decaying on this point; it expires a little bit, it has lost…
A little decadent, I think we Westerners are not at the highest level to help other peoples.
The West needs to talk, to respect each other, and then there is the danger of populism.
Today it is the biggest graveyard of humanity.”
He was also asked about euthanasia, which he should we should leave to the animals.
“Killing is not human, period. If you kill with motivation, eventually you will kill more and more. Let’s leave killing to the beasts.”
Pope Francis’ advice for the West is to “make a policy where immigrants are included with the principle that the migrant should be welcomed, accompanied, promoted, and integrated.”
“That is very important, to integrate, but instead: “no”, and you leave things empty. It is a lack in understanding values, when the West has experienced this, we are countries that have migrated. Migration I think at this time should be taken seriously, because it raises the intellectual and congenial value of the West a little bit.”
🙏 Pray for the West!
