Pope Benedict XVI
The Pope has decided to promote a new world order as far as the economy is concerned:
UN could create economic body with teeth, as pope suggestedCNS – July 7, 2009VATICAN CITY (CNS) — Pope Benedict XVI’s call for an international authority with “real teeth” to guide the global economy could be realized with the creation of a U.N. “socio-economic security council” to stand alongside the current Security Council dedicated to peacekeeping, said an economist who advises the Vatican.Stefano Zamagni, a professor of economic policies at the University of Bologna, Italy, and a consultant to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, spoke July 7 at the Vatican press conference held to present Pope Benedict’s encyclical, “Caritas in Veritate” (“Charity in Truth.”)
Pope Benedict wrote that the current financial crisis demonstrated just how little control national governments have over the process of globalization and the interdependence of the world’s economy.
The pope called for the reform of the United Nations, as well as of international bodies involved in economics and finance. The reform, he said, should help ensure that the world’s poorer countries have a voice in economic decisions impacting everyone. The reform should aim to revive ailing economies, protect the environment, provide food security and promote peace more effectively, he said…
The United Nations, he said, has “a security council for military affairs. Why don’t we have one for socio-economic affairs? If we did, the crisis of 2007-2008, which saw the price of grains triple despite an increased supply,” might have been resolved more quickly.
The increase in grain prices triggered food emergencies throughout the world’s poorer countries and has been identified as one of the first signs of what became the global financial crisis…
Archbishop Crepaldi said the central message of the pope’s encyclical is that people have a vocation, a call from God, to act righteously in the economy and at work, in their families and communities and to work for the common good in all those areas.
“If goods are only goods, if the economy is just the economy, if being together means only living alongside each other, if work is just production and progress is only growth,” he said, then there is nothing that inspires people to accept each other as brothers and sisters and help the weakest members of the human family. http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0903106.htm
It should be noted that Pope John-Paul II also wanted a new world economic order. It is just now the Vatican seems to be seizing upon the opportunity as it is seemingly becoming possible.
Any new world economic order will see the USA and its Anglo-descended allies in a position other than on top. It will also likely see the rise of a European leader (the future King of the North) rise up to the very top of it.
