Need for jobs seen as theme for Pope's weekend visit to Molise region

Catholic World News - July 04, 2014

"In Campobasso there is talk of nothing but this visit," Archbishop Giancarlo Maria Bregantini of Campobasso-Bojano, Italy, told Vatican Radio, referring to visit by Pope Francis this coming weekend.

The Pope is scheduled to make seven stops during a trip to the Molise region. Archbishop Bregantini said that just as the Pontiff had emphasized his opposition to organized crime during his recent trip to Calabria, he would probably emphasize the need for jobs during his trip to Molise. Unemployment is high in the region, the archbishop said, and 'the lack of jobs enslaves us and makes our future uncertain."

    Agree with what was said so far. Now what! What is the plan to create the jobs? It is easy to say make jobs and that resolves all. reason they are slaves to the mafia is there is no liberty for the individual. The public is dependent on the mob. Very simmilar to what is happening here. Here the mob is the government controlling your freedom and creating the dependence. Soon they will control you completely just like the mob. The intent of each is power.
