“When a conductive mass, the priest says: “Vosvick our hearts”, he says “Raise our phones for pictures”. No, this is bad, and I was very sad when I worship here on the square or in the Basilica and see so many raised phones – and not only believers, but the priests and bishops,” said the Pontiff
Pope Francis urged to rethink the meaning and value of sacraments, worship and sacrament, “by asking yourself a simple question”: how to teach a child to be baptized and why before starting the prayer needs to kneel.
“A mass is not a performance. We are talking about how to meet the passions and resurrection of the Lord. So the priest says, “let Vosvick our hearts.” What does it mean? Remember: no phones,” said the Pontiff.
