Here are some thoughts of Most. Rev. Thomas Kabore, bishop of the diocese of Kaya in Burkina Faso, and President of the Commission for Justice and Peace for his country:
“I came here above all because of Bishop Basile. We have discovered here a Church of militant faithful who are working for the coming of the Kingdom of God. What struck me was the theme of your week of study: “The daily bread distributed to all, the economy at the service of man.” What I discovered above all is how the banks appropriated for themselves the sovereign role of creating money.
The sovereign function of a nation is to create money for the needs of that country. If we had this possibility, the situation would change in every country. Then, the countries would really be sovereign and could develop. Especially so when one sees that money is made in such a simple way with numbers, with the confidence, of course, of the exchange. It is really an interesting perspective. We are presently living in a system based on falsity.”
