Pope calls for resolution of Naples garbage strike

Catholic World News - October 25, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI has called for a “fair and mutually agreed-upon solution” to a strike that has blocked collection of refuse in Naples.

The strike has had a painful effect on the Italian city, with an estimated 2,400 tons of refuse rotting on the streets. The resulting stench, the threat to public health, and the possibility of intervention by the European Union have caused a crisis in Naples.

    How about the Holy Father cleaning up the stench that is going on within the Church? Dissidents to Catholic doctrines and dogmas have been polluting the Church and leading souls astray for decades.
