In his first official visit to Mexico, Pope Francisco said that the benefit of a few in detriment to the majority, makes for a terrain that is fertile for corruption, narco trafficking, exclusion, violence, person trafficking, kidnapping and death. ( Otis: you tell him Francisco!)
He also said that " this is causing suffering and slowing down Mexico's development, for the common good in the 21st Century, does not enjoy a good market".
The Pontiff added before President Enrique Pena Nieto that the future should be forged with the presence of women and men that are honest and just.
"To the leaders of social life, both cultural and political, should correspond to them working in a special manner to offer all the citizens the opportunity to be worthy actors in their own destiny."
Francisco pointed out that its is a joy for him to step onto Mexican soil and and he said that he " had come as a missionary of mercy, and peace, but also as a son that wants to pay tribute to his mother, the Virgin of Guadalupe.
He emphasized that the youth of the Mexican population is the main wealth of the nation, a village with youth is able to renew itself.
Prior to the words from the leader of the Catholic Church, President Enrique Pena Nieto welcomed him and said that " his pilgrimage to Mexico will be historic, and will be the guiding light for millions of Mexican's."
"The causes championed by the Pope are also the causes of Mexico, millions of Mexicans are ready to receive your words of peace, charity and hope, they welcome your light".
