In an interview with Italian journalist Domenico Agasso, set to be released Tuesday, Pope Francis promotes the World Economic Forum's Great Reset agenda.
Regarding COVID, the Pope says, "The world will never be the same again. But it is precisely within this calamity that we must grasp those signs which may prove to be the cornerstones of reconstruction. Speeches are not enough to solve emergencies. The pandemic is an alarm signal on which humanity is forced to reflect. This time of trial can thus become a time of wise and far-sighted choices for the good of humanity, of all humanity."
Pope Francis also calls for "a new model of development" that is more environment-friendly.
He urges the world start this phase as soon as possible, saying, "If we don't roll up our sleeves and immediately take care of the Earth, with radical personal and political choices, with an economic 'green' turn by directing technological developments in this direction, sooner or later our common home will throw us out the window. We cannot waste any more time."
One way to accomplish this, according to the pontiff, is by "limiting support to companies that are harmful to the environment and to peace."
