Say “No” to Corruption
That those who have material, political or spiritual power may resist any lure of corruption.
From an excerpt by Rev. William Blazek, SJ, the director of The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network:
[T]he founder of the Jesuits (Saint Ignatius of Loyola) knew that riches, power and pride were all closely interrelated. The enemy of our human nature leads us to think our gifts and abilities are our own or that having some power might bring us material, social or spiritual wealth.
“[P]ut away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth.” (Eph 4:22-24)
