Pope Francis' reflections
Corruption 'sin at fingertips' of powerful
"Corrupt politicians, corrupt businessmen, and corrupt church leaders — they're everywhere. … Corruption is precisely the sin that is at your fingertips. ... It is a sin that is close at hand" and easy to succumb to. "Those who pay are the hospitals without medicines, the sick who get no care, children without an education." … the poor and the marginalized are "the martyrs of corruption" those who end up paying the price for the politicians, financiers and church officials who abuse their power.
— Pope Francis at Mass June 16; via Catholic News Service
