Healing people more important than the economy, says Pope Francis
Pope Francis said on Sunday that healing people was “more important” than the economy, as countries around the world continue to ease lockdown restrictions.
The Pope made his first address from his window overlooking St Peter’s Square in three months. Many thronged to the Vatican City square, which was reopened to the public last Monday, to listen to him.
“Healing people, not saving [money] to help the economy [is important] – healing people, who are more important than the economy,” he said.
“We people are temples of the Holy Spirit, the economy is not.”
