Is the Vatican Hoarding Second Temple Treasures?

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)-- Pope Benedict XVI has urged the creation of a "true world political authority" to "guarantee the protection of the environment" and to manage the global economy, Worthy News learned on Monday, June 21.

The pope issued an encyclical on the eve of the G-8 summit entitled, "Charity in truth".

An encyclical is the highest form of papal writing, and gives the clearest indication to the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics of what the Vatican thinks about specific social and moral issues.

Pope Benedict said, "there is an urgent need of a true world political authority" whose task would be "to manage the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis; to avoid any deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that would result."

"COMMON GOOD"

Such an authority would have to be "regulated by law" and "seek to establish the common good" for the world, the pontiff added.

The authority  "would need to be universally recognized and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all, regard for justice, and respect for rights".

The pope also said he wanted to see the "construction of a social order" that conforms to the "moral order".

He stressed the need for an  "the interconnection between moral and social spheres, and to the link between politics and the economic and civil spheres", as envisioned by the charter of the United Nations.
