Francis 'worried' Europe and North America are limiting their acceptance to migrants

Pope Francis has voiced blamed the shortcomings of globalization on the rapid rise of nationalism.

Francis did not highlight any specific countries of political parties but reflected on national policies favoring "quick partisan consensus" over patient efforts for the common good.

The Pontiff expressed worry that Europe and North America are limiting their acceptance to migrants in his speech to diplomats accredited to the Vatican.

Speaking to a broad audience at the Vatican, the Pope said: “Our differences are not a detriment or a danger; they are a source of richness. As when an artist is about to make a mosaic: it is better to have tiles of many colors available, rather than just a few."

“The experience of families teaches us this,” he added.

“as brothers and sisters, we are all different from each other. We do not always agree, but there is an unbreakable bond uniting us, and the love of our parents helps us to love one another,” he continued

Francis then addressed the 'side effects' of materialism.

"Insatiable greed marks all human history, even today, when, paradoxically, a few dine luxuriantly while all too many go without the daily bread needed to survive,” he said.
