Pope Francis releases 2018 World Communications Day message - Vatican News:
' Constant contamination by deceptive language can end up darkening our interior life. Dostoevsky’s observation is illuminating':
'People who lie to themselves and listen to their own lie come to such a pass that they cannot distinguish the truth within them, or around them, and so lose all respect for themselves and for others. And having no respect, they cease to love, and in order to occupy and distract themselves without love they give way to passions and to coarse pleasures, and sink to bestiality in their vices, all from continual lying to others and to themselves.” (The Brothers Karamazov, II, 2).
