A reminder from Pope Francis

Pope Francis leads the Ash Wednesday mass which opens Lent, the forty-day period of abstinence and deprivation for Christians before Holy Week and Easter, on Wednesday, at the Santa Sabina church in Rome. Pope Francis reminded the Catholic Faithful to spend time reading the word of God and disconnect from their cellphones and avoid verbal violence online.
