Pope Francis: Building the Future from our "Shipwreck Culture"

"People need to learn from the "shipwreck culture" and salvage the past to build the future: "The shipwrecked castaway faces the challenge of survival with creativity," he said.

"He needs to begin building a hut using the boards from the sunken ship, together with new things found on the island he's washed up on."

"In every new era, one can apply the image of the shipwreck because there are things that we no longer need, temporary things, and (eternal) values that get expressed in another way."
