Well let's talk about money that was -- today a 508 point drop -- the -- makes the pope's words look almost four of static did you hear about this Pope Benedict the sixteenth.
Speaking to this -- this week in -- saying and I quote.
He who builds only on visible and tangible things like success career and money builds of the house of his life on sand.
We are told the that the holy father -- as long financial stocks.
Douglas and I just want to see is still -- -- up with but it.
-- -- I'm joined now by Father Jonathan Morris who was long financial stocks and I have some free time on his arm but in -- -- -- -- but.
The holy -- saying.
Well you've got some Smart producers and I know you can't -- -- to -- Not a one done some -- -- 24 hours yesterday and the Drudge Report it -- deaths.
Pope Benedict the sixteenth says the world.
Financial system built on the sand.
Bags and not as we just saw from your quote that's not what the -- so it.
And that's sensationalist -- and it's dangerous what the Pope is saying is that's if you.
Build your life only on money only on success only of the things we can see we'll of course when that comes toppling down so will you.
So is -- trying to get -- -- -- all right well you know I've lost all this money so.
What is he trying to say well it could be worse than what.
Well you know I think what he's saying is if if we are Smart investors we're going to invest in what blasts.
Right of course doesn't mean that -- -- that doesn't successes had it doesn't need Giuliani.
And I look at them alive -- invest well but I know I've listened in on line you -- far better than I do but.
He rails against the -- -- he rails against capitalism alive and I wonder whether he just doesn't like which one -- thinks.
And the different I didn't -- -- and I tell -- the Vatican because.
Yeah exactly I think people Hussein to sell the Vatican museums and -- could feed the -- -- -- day.
Because I know a lot of rich captains and say well I I know that old you know biblical story that the odds of a rich guy getting in -- I mean I can't -- Had I had -- early in the camel are not -- anyway a negative.
Just a Catholic thing hate people who are watching cover this -- for just a second.
But the pope's words are saying is is it just so common sense if you want happiness in life I think all of us want -- happiness in life.
Don't count on money.
Bringing that happiness -- you -- -- a little while Venus had you been shorting the financial.
I think quickly put invest in love and best -- relationships and best in eternity and also.
Do good business -- it's a combination received anything yet and -- -- rich people who aren't in love.
But whatever it's people who like money you know that's like their family and friends so when you get upstairs it's not as a sign that you're into the Wall Street and none I think -- -- people who.
No Wall Street and know how to put into perspective but you know this Pope again and again father has talked about the responsibility that comes with wealth and helping -- ward doing all that.
And I know on that as a Catholic slight progress.
You can't have it both ways right you can't -- they vilify.
And then clearly depend on it.
Yes but you can have a both -- if that means building wealth.
For the sake of the common good.
Personable few family and then for society people would.
Very different thing if people were building wealth for their own sake what and I don't care about anyone else down.
The government is saying.
You guys who -- building while we're building it really it's your own interest -- messed things up for everybody else.
We're gonna come down hard on -- Now.
Would the Pope approve of that get tough for other guys are abusing the system better believe that's called justice so the -- -- believe -- big government.
No I didn't finish you know -- -- -- Agassi say that he had just said the Pope likes to go back -- -- you wish they'd just but I guess you did yes you.
All right we'll have a restroom will look at this directly later tomorrow I father very good thing I think -- much.
