Italian bishops issue wake-up call for country's southern region
February 25, 2010

Citing widespread corruption, persistent high unemployment, and a lack of effective leadership, the bishops said: "The region will never realize its full potential until the men and women of the south understand that they cannot expect from others that which depends on them."
