Pope Francis on Sunday encouraged Christians to learn how to seek and find the precious things in life, including a relationship with Christ and others.
“Every day, at home, on the street, at work, on holiday, we have the possibility of discerning good. And it is important to know how to find what counts: to train ourselves to recognize the precious gems of life and to distinguish them from junk,” he said in his weekly Angelus address July 30.
“Let us not,” he continued, “waste time and freedom on trivial things, pastimes that leave us empty inside, while life offers us every day the precious pearl of the encounter with God and with others!”
Vatican authorities said an estimated 11,000 people attended Pope Francis’ Sunday address and recitation of the Angelus in St. Peter’s Square.
