The Pope, “in this moment of very complex economic and social crisis”, reiterates his closeness to the world of work. “Many workers and many families live in difficult situations, aggravated by the pandemic. But the pandemic cannot and must not become an excuse to justify omissions in justice or security. On the contrary, the crisis can be faced as an opportunity to grow together in solidarity and in the quality of work “, said Pope Francis, receiving in audience the Italian Association of Leather Chemists.
The Pope underlines the importance of the relationship between generations: “For me the challenge of this moment is the meeting between grandparents and grandchildren, bypassing the parents perhaps, but that meeting is key, and we must work so that young people meet the old, it’s a challenge right now. ” He said this in the hearing with the Italian Association of Leather Chemists.
“It is very important to bring together the wisdom of the elderly and the enthusiasm of young people: that they meet, this is the secret. I imagine young people who are passionate about an original sector like yours, and need to find old people in the profession. ‘, which have a lot to teach, and not only on a technical level, but also on a human level “, added Pope Francis.
