Idols that can't bring happiness
Ideologies with their claim to the absolute: Wealth — and this is a great idol — power and success, vanity, with their illusion of eternity and omnipotence, values such as physical beauty and health: When they become idols to which everything is sacrificed, they are all things that confuse the mind and the heart, and instead of supporting life, they lead to death. It is terrible to hear, and painful to the soul: something that once, years ago, I heard in the Diocese of Buenos Aires: a good woman — very beautiful — boasted about her beauty. She said, as if it were natural: “Yes, I had to have an abortion because my figure is very important.” These are idols, and they lead you down the wrong path, and do not give you happiness.
