This was really touching, even if you don't speak Italian you can get the gist of what they are discussing. At one point one of the judges asks her what she thinks the Vatican would think of her doing this and she responds that she is waiting for a telephone call from Pope Francis...awesome.

They seem to have taken down the Vatican link, so here's the youtube clip with subtitles available:

Two Popes were canonized today. That must have hurt.

Hey everybody I have been two busy to really post much at all here or at Diversity Tomorrow and that is part of the reason that I'm saying goodbye to the Wizard of Vegas Forum. At the same time I will continue to say hello and post over at DT. It's been over a year since I've gambled and its magic charm of figuring out the odds and strategy have waned. That along with my spiritual director helping me to see that gambling is maybe not the best hobby to be associated with a priest. It is not that gambling is inherently evil, it is not as the Catechism of the Church makes clear, but many people are hurt by an addiction to it (including some parishioners) and in solidarity with them I'd like to remove myself from a forum so directly attached to gambling. I thank God for the Wizard and for his other site Diversity Tomorrow because it gives me an opportunity to continue to discuss things like religion with a eclectic wonderful group of people such as yourselves. Thanks for everything and maybe I'll see you over at DT some time. God Bless!

I won't comment on your personal choices, but I will say this: None of that frees you of the obligation to attend a WoVCon at least once.

Come on, lots of people here would love to meet you.

I do plan on going to Vegas for a WoVCon next year. My powerlifting I think will bring me there and I would love to meet so many of the great people on this forum.

I understand completely and will continue to enjoy your posts at DT.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Good. I will be starting weight exercises when I get home and will surely have questions for you then ;)

Seriously, I would love to meet you and am glad you plan on attending next year.

Perhaps I should be a spiritual director, I had the same view. Personally, I say you should be able to gamble all you want. I just don't think God likes gambling and there is really only one reason to gamble, and that's to try to WIN money. I think in gods eyes money should be WORKED for only and only enough to take care of yourself and family -10%.

I wonder what your spiritual directors views are on whether or not god has humor ;)

Good luck or positive variance. Leading people towards god is much like gabeling, play enough hands (talk to enough people) and eventually you hit something. Once in a while you hit the jackpot and bring in a wale or save a life. Perhaps Godspeed is a better word.

it will certainly be a loss to the site when you go.
