    Pope Francis Warns Catholics of Easy Sex, Drugs & Money

    Pope Francis warned on Tuesday, in a message for Lent, that Catholics should be wary of easy sex, drugs and money offered by “false prophets.”

    Lent is a period of penance observed in the six weeks leading up to Easter, the most important feast in the Christian calendar, which celebrates the resurrection of Christ. This year's Lent starts on February 14, while Easter is on April 1.

    “How many of God’s children are mesmerized by momentary pleasures, mistaking them for true happiness!

    “How many men and women live entranced by the dream of wealth, which only makes them slaves to profit and petty interests,” Pope Francis preached.

    “False prophets can also be ‘charlatans’ who offer easy and immediate solutions to suffering that soon prove utterly useless.

    “How many young people are taken in by the panacea of drugs, of disposable relationships, of easy but dishonest gains,” he added.

    Hailing the virtue of charity, the pope said, “More than anything else, what destroys charity is greed for money.”
