According to the Associated Press, Pope Francis is shown above flanked by Cagliari Archbishop Arrigo Miglio as he wears a coal miner's helmet he was given by a miner on the occasion of his one day visit to the island of Sardinia, in Cagliari, Italy, Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013. Francis denounced what he called big business's idolatry of money as he traveled last Sunday to one of Italy's poorest regions to offer hope to the unemployed and entrepreneurs struggling to hang on. "Where there is no work, there is no dignity," he said. Sardinia, known for its pristine beaches and swank vacation homes, has been particularly hard-hit by Italy's economic crisis, with businesses closing and more and more of the island's families forced to seek charity. The island's desperation made headlines last year when a coal miner, participating in an underground sit-in to protest the planned closure of the mine, slashed his wrists on television. A recent poll showed 46 percent of US Catholics think several of Pope Francis' remarks on the current state of the church reflect a 'good change' in the direction he's brought since being elevated to pope back in March.
