CWN Editor's Note: Resuming his Wednesday public audiences on July hiatus, Pope Francis spoke on August 1 (video) about idolatry, saying that the worship of idols always leads to bloodshed and destruction. In a continuation of his series of talks on the Ten Commandments, the Pope said that today, many people make idols of money and career. As a result, he said, “lives are destroyed, families are ruins, and young people are abandoned to destructive habits.”
