    “Money must serve rather than govern” Francis tells conference of Catholic businesses

    Corruption “is a fraud to democracy” and opens the doors to “terrible evils”, above all ”corruption is to become a follower of the devil, the father of lies.”

    Pope Francis warned Catholic business leaders against the danger of worshipping money, saying corruption is to follow the lies of the devil, whereas practices aimed for the common good are always built around principals of honesty and fraternity. “Corruption is the worst social plague. It’s the lie of seeking personal gain of that of the group itself under the guise of a service to society,” the Pope said on Thursday.
