Pope Benedict XVI reminds us that we are made to be in union with each other. The materialistic world, focused on pride and selfishness, seeks individual isolation and dominance over others. This is incompatible with developing a community that is a united people.
Pope Benedict XVI
“The development of peoples depends, above all, on a recognition that the human race is a single family working together in true communion, not simply a group of subjects who happen to live side by side.”
