End ‘tyranny’ of money – Pope

VATICAN CITY: Pope Francis on Thursday called on world leaders to put an end to the “cult of money” and to do more to help the poor, warning that insecurity was rising in many regions of the world and the “joy of life” was diminishing in developed countries.

“The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any truly human goal,” Francis said in an address to ambassadors to the Vatican.

He said that radical free-market ideologies had created “a new, invisible, and at times virtual, tyranny” and human beings “considered as consumer goods” and called for global financial reform that would benefit everyone.
