Internet and Cell Phones Are “Futile”, According to Pope Francis

“Maybe many young people waste too many hours on futile things, chatting on the internet or with smart phones, watching TV soap operas, and [using] the products of technological progress, which should simplify and improve the quality of life, but which distract one’s attention away from what is really important.” 

That was Pope Francis’ message yesterday to 50,000 German altar servers gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
In response to a question from a young server who asked how, when there are pressures from school, church and other areas, he could find time to assist at Mass, the Pope advised,

“You need to organize your lives a little, plan things in a balanced way.”
