Blessing to buy papal souvenirs


www.theaustralian.news.com.au

CATHOLIC pilgrims and the public will be able to buy papal mementos after Sydney's archbishop gave his blessing to indulging in "a little commercialism".

Shoppers will be able to buy World Youth Day (WYD) souvenirs such as special WYD rosary beads, Pope Benedict XVI baseball caps, rugby jerseys and even teaspoons featuring a photograph of the pontiff.

Why does this not surprise me?

I find it quite abhorrent that a supposedly moralistic institution such as the Catholic church can't take a stand against vapid commercialism.

can't be any worse than all the jesus merchandise

look at the vatican though...it's nothing but insane riches...if they really were following true gospel the vatican would be a mud hut...makes you wonder about the billion catholics that can't see the obvious

You think we don't know this stuff already - how many Catholics do you know that are blind to the facts about the vatican and the origins of the church...or do you know any Catholics at all. You honestly think that we blindly follow the vatican in our religion? The less educated, persecuted and ostracized..possibly.
Its a spiritualist religion... the vatican is just a formality.
