This pope rarely says things that we agree with, so when he does you can count on this website to carry it. File this under ‘culture and religion’ and ‘Signs of the Time’- From CBS News:
Francis urged a packed St. Peter’s Square following his weekly Angelus blessing Sunday to give the Bible the same place in daily life as cellphones, asking:
“What would happen if we turned back when we forget it, if we opened it more times a day, if we read the message of God contained in the Bible the way we read messages on our cellphones.”
A study last year by the research company dscout found that the average smartphone user spends 2.42 hours on their device each day — no doubt significantly more time than many spend with the Bible.
Response: Wow, I wonder if I am not guilty of this and I study the Bible daily but check my cell all day long. Next time you are in a long line or waiting for a doctor’s appt. check out what everyone is doing these days. Years ago everyone use to have their noses in magazines but that is no longer the case.
Of course I do have my favorite Bible app on it so there you go! Signs of the time for sure. *Top
