LIGHTBULB: "Pope says carry and read bible as if it were a mobile phone"
Pope Francis on Sunday called on people to carry and read the bible with as much dedication as they do their mobile phones.Speaking
to pilgrims in a rain-soaked St. Peter's Square, the 80-year-old pope
asked: "What would happen if we treated the bible like we do our mobile
phones?"He continued: "If we
turned around to retrieve it when we forgot it? If we carried it with us
always, even a small pocket version? If we read God's messages in the
bible like we read messages on the mobile phone?"Francis
called the comparison "paradoxical" and said it was meant to be a
source of reflection, adding that bible reading would help people resist
pope poses regularly for "selfies" with pilgrims who flock to his
weekly audiences wielding smartphones, while his English- and
Spanish-language Twitter handles have more than 23 million followers. Francis last year called the internet, social media and text messages "a gift of God" if used wisely.http://www.reuters.com/article/us-pope-bible-idUSKBN16C0J6?il=0
