pope francis - growth is for the people
Jim Kim
: I asked Pope Francis to work with us and to speak out on the need to end extreme poverty and to ensure where there is growth that the poorest 40% are always included - if he does get involved, and he does become one of our leading spokepeople for the fight against poverty i think we can build a movement the likes of which has never been seen before on earth

Dear Dean Abela

Class of 2017-2018 is greatest Franciscan-Entrepreneur Values Opportunity to Change the World

Why?

2 Factors:
Pope Francis’ Motherland Argentina hosts G20
Everywhere China’s Xi Jinping travels to meet national or business leaders he asks 3 questions:
ü      What missing infrastructure (rail, bridges, ports pipelines etc) could change local connectivity with the world
ü      What digital big data small platforms and apps can change the world eg Ali Baba’s worldwide free trade platform for small enterprises, understanding blockchain partners of end poverty and leapfrogging interventions (ie where a market sector (eg cashless banking)  is changed by technology preferentially applied to poor before established value chain owners knew what was happening
ü      How could targeted vocational education including 4 languages (English, Chinese, Mother Tongue, Coding ) change the world of youth opportunities

On May 15 China Belt Road summit was joined by 29 national leaders (including heads of Argentina and Chile) as well heads of world bank, IMF, UN

Maps of 11 sub-regions of the world were recommended for ongoing collaborative analysis – South America being one

There is also the opportunity to change choices of Donald Trump. Kissinger briefed both Jinping and Trump in December that the last thing youth anywhere needs is a cold war of sustainability goals where every nation has to choose between China and USA as an ally. The Chinese Diaspora are working really hard on keeping all information flows open for trumps advisers – ultimately they would even like to convert him to green and no walls but they will keep sharing maps benchmarking development progress in all the dimensions above

In addition to published communiques, Chinese students and I have collected many hours of taped conversations including why the new head of the UN sees china’s way forward as a gamechanger for refugees. We also partner a hotspot device developed by Intel so that up to 50 people can catalogue practical videos wherever they want to open space update summits on multilateral development

I also have connections with may of the greatest girl empowerment solutions hubs after 10 years of visits to Bangladesh and now 3 years of visits to BeijingChina’s development revolution is based on respecting “women hold up half the earth”.

If you are not the right person at Catholic University to discuss all this with but someone else is please advise me

Thanks

February 2016 extract from last papal video before mexico visit
"This month I make a special request: that we take good care of creation -- a gift freely given -- cultivating and protecting it for future generations," Ppe Francis said. "Caring for our common home."///The earth is our common heritage, the fruits of which should benefit everyone,"

..."However, what is happening in the world we live in?" Francis asks
In a press release from the Global Catholic Climate Movement Jesuit Fr. Frédéric Fornos, international director of the Apostleship of Prayer, said the February prayer intention "comes at a crucial time for humanity, addressing an area where we urgently need to make changes."
"We need a conversation that brings us together, because we are all affected by environmental challenges, especially the poor and displaced," Fornos said.
The video is the second released since the Vatican announced it as the new prayer intention format, which it produces with the Apostleship of Prayer international organization. The first video asked for peaceful, loving dialogue among people of different faiths. Also on Friday, news broke that Francis will meet with Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill in Cuba -- the first ever meeting between leaders of the two Christian churches -- as part of his upcoming trip to Mexico.
In April 2015, Francis made his universal prayer intention for the month, "That people may learn to respect creation and care for it as a gift from God." Two months later, he released Laudato Si', the first papal encyclical to focus primarily on issues of ecology and the environment.

VATICAN CITY
Pope Francis will visit some of the most marginalized communities in Mexico and seek to bring hope to a country suffering from crime, corruption and inequality when he visits Feb. 12-17.

Francis will stop in six cities, including two in the state of Chiapas and -- across from El Paso, Texas -- Ciudad Juárez, which just five years ago was considered the "murder capital of the world" as drug cartels disputed a trafficking corridor.

The pope said in November that he wanted to visit cities where St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI never went. But he said he will stop at the capital of Mexico City to pray at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. "But if it wasn't for Our Lady," he wouldn't go there, he had told reporters.

The pope will fly out of and return to Mexico City each day after celebrating Mass at the basilica on the second day of his trip.

Over the following four days, he will visit a pediatric hospital in the capital as well as families and indigenous communities in the southernmost state of Chiapas, Mexico's poorest state, which gained worldwide attention for the 1990s Zapatista rebellion.

NCR's Vatican correspondent, Joshua J. McElwee, will be traveling with the pope. NCR will have additional reporters in Chiapas and Ciudad Juárez during the trip. Watch for coverage onhttp://ncronline.org/feature-series/francis-mexico and a full report in the next print issue.
Francis will visit young people and religious in Morelia, celebrate Mass on the Mexican-U.S. border in Ciudad Juárez and visit its infamous Cereso state prison, where at least 20 people were killed during riots in 2009 triggered by rival gangs among the prisoners.

"We are certain that the presence of the Holy Father will confirm us in the faith, hope and charity and will help the church move ahead in its permanent mission," the Mexican bishops' conference said in a Dec. 12 statement. "It will encourage believers and nonbelievers and commit us to the construction of a just Mexico, with solidarity, reconciliation and peace."

Fr. Oscar Enríquez, parish priest and director of the Paso del Norte Human Rights Center in Ciudad Juárez, told Catholic News Service that Juárez is often seen as an example of overcoming extreme violence. "The pope always looks for the peripheries. Juárez is the periphery of Mexico and it's a place migrants pass through."

Fr. Patricio Madrigal, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in the Michoacán city of Nueva Italia, said that by visiting Morelia, the pope "wants to be closer to an area beaten down by violence. He wants to bring comfort and also closeness."

The pope's meeting with young people and religious in Morelia is important, Madrigal said, as the church there works to keep kids out of the cartels, provide priests with support, and "strengthen us in the faith and our work in attending to victims of violence."

Priests in the rugged Tierra Caliente region there had lent moral and spiritual support to vigilantes arming themselves to run off a drug cartel in 2013.

Francis "wants to give young people a message of hope and that they stay away from the temptation of violence," Madrigal said.
