Pope Francis and the World Economic Forum

January 22, 2014

Pope Francis' message to the World Economic Forum gathered at Davos, Switzerland was not the first time a pope has spoken about economic issues. It was, however the first time such a message was read out loud directly to participants at a high level economic forum.
Media coverage has been equally unprecedented. One unique feature dedicated to Pope Francis' message is the word cloud (above) created by CNN. It ran along with John Allen's opinion piece "Will global elite listen to Pope of poor?"
