What is Catholic teaching on gambling?


#1

What is Catholic teaching on gambling? I am particularly interested in a fuller explanation of what is in the Catholic Catechism #2413 as well as the Church's role in responding to the needs of persons who are addicted and those impacted by the addiction.

Thank you for your assistance with this.
