“Politics should have primacy on finance and ethics should guide all activities... the integral development of peoples, the objective of universal common good, is not realised by the spread of entrepreneurship cognitive and material goods alone... it is above all realised by those good decisions that are possible when there is the notion of an integral human good”.
“In this, religions are crucial, especially when teaching fraternity and peace”. “When religion is excluded from the public sphere or when on the other hand, religious fundamentalism prevails, the life of society is impoverished and political motivations can become overbearing and aggressive face”.
A exclusão da religião da esfera pública, assim como o fundamentalismo, empobrecem a vida da sociedade; a política assume uma face opressora e agressiva
