The Business Francis Means
Understanding the Pope's Message on the Economy
The Business Francis Means aims to break through these walls, showing that Pope Francis has something to say to all Christians. His message, taken as a whole, keeps us from dividing the "seamless garment" of Christ: he reminds the conservatives of the problems of inequality and poverty, and the liberals that social justice is not enough – the Church is the bride of Christ, not a social institution or an NGO.
Monsignor Martin Schlag summarizes and explains the message of Pope Francis on business and the economy in this compact volume. The Business Francis Means will be of great interest to the Catholic layperson, especially one involved in political or economic life.
About the Author
"Deciphering Francis's message on the economy on any given occasion can be a challenge. The pope may be seeking more prophetic critique or pastoral outreach than offering policy advice or theological nuance...In The Business Francis Means, Monsignor Martin Schlag clears away many of these confusions to elucidate the main themes Francis offers. In this, Schlag is an excellent guide...While Schlag often, but judiciously, adds his own wisdom for insight, or suggestions for phrase- ology, I believe he has faithfully captured and translated the pope's ideas."—Journal of Markets and Morality
