Greed can destroy you, pope says in homily

November 4, 2013

Money by itself isn’t a problem, but greed and an attachment to money cause evil and destroy families and relationships, Pope Francis said.

“Money is needed to bring about many good things,” he said in his morning Mass homily Oct. 21, “but when your heart is attached (to money), it destroys you.

How many destroyed families have we seen because of money problems, sibling against sibling, father against child,” he said.
