Always with us, always close to us …

mobile-phone-marketSpeaking to the crowds gathered in St Peter’s Square following his weekly Angelus blessing yesterday, the Pope urged those present to give the Bible the same place in daily life as mobile phones.

“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 mobile phones?” he asked.

The Bible, he explained, contains the Word of God, the most effective tool in fighting evil and keeping us close to God.

Inviting the faithful to carry a pocket-sized Gospel all the time, the Pope concluded with the words: “don’t forget what would happen if we treated the Bible as we treat our mobile phones, always with us, always close to us!”
