Spiritual Alzheimers is:
a) what happens to your brain when you have too many mortal sins on your soul.
b) what Pope Francis recently chastised Vatican leaders for.
c) a long-term care facility for Catholics.
d) Oh God, I can't remember what it is...
Correct answer is: b. The Pope gave a tongue-lashing to Vatican poobahs, suggesting they had forgotten basic spiritual values that had drawn them to the priesthood. He also warned against the "terrorism of gossip." Verbal jihad anyone?
