Catholicism's new Pope Francis has called for efforts by someone else to help the world's poor and to reduce income inequality. The Pope is a teacher of Christianity for world Catholicism but also a chief executive managing the vast global enterprise of the Catholic Church.
Education and training for vocational (practical) skills -- such as learning to be a carpenter -- would be one of the greatest solutions to worldwide poverty. As it happens, the largest school system in the world outside of government is operated by the Catholic Church. (To be fair, Catholicism is not one single legal organization.)
Pope Francis has direct power or at least tremendous influence over the world's Catholic schools and colleges. Once upon a time, even non-Catholic parents worked hard to place their children in a Catholic parochial school to give their children the best chance in life.
But for the last 50-60 years, Catholic schools have been neglected by pretty much everyone, including Vatican leaders. Schools once launched to benefit society are forgotten. The Vatican could lead a project to rejuvenate those schools, including by rejecting experimental fads.
