'Brothers and sisters' of the Mafia, repent, pope says in Sicily

PALERMO (Reuters) - Pope Francis appealed to Sicily’s Mafia on Saturday to abandon a life of crime and violence, saying the island needed “men and women of love, not men and women ‘of honor,’” using the term mobsters apply to themselves.

The shit hit the fan in the Vatican this week and suddenly the pope is interested in the crimes committed by the mafia.

Hey, don't look at me; look at what they're doing over there...

At least the Mafia are honest criminals.  The Vatican should have such integrity.  Then again, the Vatican Bank commits crimes, on a level to which the Mafia can only aspire.

Reminds me of a line from a Kurt Vonnegut novel.

Apparently the "Look over there" trick didn't work ...
 

Pope Francis asked for daily prayers to protect the Catholic Church from what he says are

"attacks by the devil," in his latest response to the clerical sex abuse and cover-up scandal

roiling his papacy.

To be clear, the Great Accuser that the HRCC needs protection from -- is the District Attorney.

 

They would find that not breaking the Law, is more powerful protection than prayer.

The child abusing Cardinal -- removed by Pope Francis -- now lives by a school.
