    Pope criticises pursuit of wealth

The Pope told Bishops in Rome that since God’s word is the only veritable reality, the global financial crisis proves that the pursuit of money and success is pointless.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church said that the disappearance of money as banks collapsed showed that wealth meant “nothing”.

The Pope said that people should instead base their lives on God’s word.

Those who think that “concrete things we can touch are the surest reality” are deceiving themselves, he said.








 (Maybe next time, he will lose the gold cross before the picture, and he will wear a less ostentatious outfit with fewer jewels, when he’s going to talk about the dangers of excess wealth. Our Lord wore a crown of thorns and homespun, after all.)
