SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (CNS) — Whether you still stick to books or magazines or get everything online, Pope Francis said all media should encourage and edify — not enslave.
“Back in my day — the Stone Age — when a book was good, you read it; when the book was bad for you, you chucked it,” he told hundreds of youth in Sarajevo June 6.
The pope ended his one-day visit to the capital of this Balkan nation meeting with young people of different religions and ethnicities who volunteer together with the archdiocesan St. John Paul II Center. He set aside his prepared text and told the young people he would rather take some questions.
