Pope Francis’s 15 Ailments of the Curia are extremely similar to why SANTA IS RETIRING ©2014, penned by Chicago Writer & Personality, ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith. Some People possess the innate Capability to see what has gone wrong and awry and are not afraid to air it or blurt-it-out so that others can see and perhaps help correct what is morally wrong with ‘Things in General.’ Things (by Definition) are Issues We all have, no matter where We live and/or what We believe in. Humanity and the Creatures (that live with us on this Earth) are extremely alike. Profit-over-People is a slap in the Face to Humanity, in which we are all apart.
In order to further that Sentiment, listed below is the Papal List that should be studied and acted upon. You can’t help to notice that although Pope Francis addresses his Cardinals, Bishops and Priests with these ‘Ailments,’ these Individuals also include ‘Corporate America’ and those powerful Scoundrels scattered around the Globe who are entirely one-sided and fixated only on themselves. We know who they are. What needs to be done now is how to prepare the Damage. Hopefully, it is not irreparable.
SANTA IS RETIRING ©2014, of course, is publicized throughout the major Social Media Networks in order for it to receive Recognition it needs to surface, while it is being perfected. ASK plans include:
After all, Christmas Movies and Holiday Gifts (especially Books) are Big Hits and popular with The Masses.
After all, it will take a while for Santa to dismantle the North Pole (after his Final Rendezvous on December 24-25, 2014) as it takes time to locate the exact Angel Investors and Studio in which to produce this Project.

We are pleased and grateful for those Parties and Individuals who initially were curious enough to check-out the Reasons why #SANTA_IS_RETIRING.
Pope Francis’s 15 ‘Ailments of the Curia’ are:
1) Feeling immortal, immune or indispensable. “A Curia that doesn’t criticise itself, that doesn’t update itself, that doesn’t seek to improve itself is a sick body.”
2) Working too hard. “Rest for those who have done their work is necessary, good and should be taken seriously.”
3) Becoming spiritually and mentally hardened. “It’s dangerous to lose that human sensibility that lets you cry with those who are crying, and celebrate those who are joyful.”
4) Planning too much. “Preparing things well is necessary, but don’t fall into the temptation of trying to close or direct the freedom of the Holy Spirit, which is bigger and more generous than any human plan.”
5) Working without coordination, like an orchestra that produces noise. “When the foot tells the hand, ‘I don’t need you’ or the hand tells the head ‘I’m in charge.’”
6) Having “spiritual Alzheimer’s”. “We see it in the people who have forgotten their encounter with the Lord ... in those who depend completely on their here and now, on their passions, whims and manias, in those who build walls around themselves and become enslaved to the idols that they have built with their own hands.”
7) Being rivals or boastful. “When one’s appearance, the colour of one’s vestments or honorific titles become the primary objective of life.”
8) Suffering from “existential schizophrenia”. “It’s the sickness of those who live a double life, fruit of hypocrisy that is typical of mediocre and progressive spiritual emptiness that academic degrees cannot fill. It’s a sickness that often affects those who, abandoning pastoral service, limit themselves to bureaucratic work, losing contact with reality and concrete people.”
9) Committing the “terrorism of gossip”. “It’s the sickness of cowardly people who, not having the courage to speak directly, talk behind people’s backs.”
10) Glorifying one’s bosses. “It’s the sickness of those who court their superiors, hoping for their benevolence. They are victims of careerism and opportunism, they honour people who aren’t God.”
11) Being indifferent to others. “When, out of jealousy or cunning, one finds joy in seeing another fall rather than helping him up and encouraging him.”
12) Having a “funereal face”. “In reality, theatrical severity and sterile pessimism are often symptoms of fear and insecurity. The apostle must be polite, serene, enthusiastic and happy and transmit joy wherever he goes.”
13) Wanting more. “When the apostle tries to fill an existential emptiness in his heart by accumulating material goods, not because he needs them but because he’ll feel more secure.”
14) Forming closed circles that seek to be stronger than the whole. “This sickness always starts with good intentions but as time goes by, it enslaves its members by becoming a cancer that threatens the harmony of the body and causes so much bad scandals especially to our younger brothers.”
15) Seeking worldly profit and showing off. “It’s the sickness of those who insatiably try to multiply their powers and to do so are capable of calumny, defamation and discrediting others, even in newspapers and magazines, naturally to show themselves as being more capable than others.”
