This story is getting a lot of play in Italy, but mostly under the radar screen stateside. The Holy Father called on a German company set to layoff over 500 works in the Italian town of Terni to think twice about the layoffs. "With work, it’s not a game!” Pope Francis said.  “And who - for the sake of money, or business, or to earn even more - takes away work, know he takes away the dignity of the person." I wonder if our friends at the Acton Institute have anything to say about the pope's comments.
