The Bishop of Rome Speaks of “Goodness”
“We oppose hatred and destruction with goodness. We live in societies of different cultures and religions, but we are brothers and sisters.” Pope Francis, Aug 7th, 2016 via Twitter.
The social climate of today’s social media is usually far from cordial or uplifting. This is simply the weight of the negative attention posts of negative thoughts and feelings of our fellow men and women. Pope Francis chooses to counter these messages of hate and degradation with messages of hope and kindness. We are not people separated by border or miles any longer. We are united by the internet and our ‘goodness’ can be shared as quickly as any message of blind hatred.
