Opus Dei, tutta la veritá

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedetto warned on Sunday against rampant materialism which he said was polluting the spirit of Christmas. "In today's consumer society, this time of the year unfortunately suffers from a sort of commercial 'pollution' that threatens to alter its real spirit," the Pope told a large crowd gathered in St. Peter's Square to hear his weekly Angelus blessing.

Mr. Joseph Ratzinger warned against rampant materialism from a marble balcony, gold-domed building in midst of jewel-encrusted religious icons while wearing giant gold cross and Prada shoes..

A German proverb goes something like this "Most people like short prayers and long sausages."
