Pope Francis Decries Idolatry of Money [VIDEO]

Pope

0:41 “Money,” the pope went on, “sickens our minds, poisons our thoughts, even poisons our faith – leading us down the path of jealousy, quarrels, suspicion, and conflict. While money begins by offering a sense of well being, if we’re not careful, wealth can quickly lead to vanity, self-importance, and the sin of pride.”
