The SIN OF GOSSIP.
A very recent article and statement on EWTN quoted the Holy Father, Pope Francis, who warned against the sin of gossip. He
explained that the Apostles, like all men, were sinners. But one sin they did not commit was the sin of gossip. See our parish
Facebook page for the entire article.
