If we do and read nothing else on the abuse scandal this Holy Week we could do no better than  firstly pray for the Holy Father and secondly read this Then perhaps try and expose the way the media and large national companies abuses the young everyday through it's exploitation of their innocence by hard selling, advertising and marketing methods that have no recourse to ethical standards of behaviour or reporting whatsoever. Praying also for those few brave journalists and advertising people who are prepared to apply the lost arts of logic, philosophy, reason, the search for truth and  proportionality to a screaming world that revolves around quick sound bites and a lemming-like ability to get it wrong 'if it sells and gets a snigger'. The biblical reference that comes to mind is of swine going over cliffs perhaps.....
