Luddite Pape

Pope urges young people not to waste time on Internet and smartphones:
"'Maybe many young people waste too many hours on futile things,' the pope said in a short speech to the altar servers - young people who help the priest during religious services - who had come to Rome on a pilgrimage. 'Our life is made up of time, and time is a gift from God, so it is important that it be used in good and fruitful actions.' Activities cited by Francis as futile were: 'chatting on the Internet or with smartphones, watching TV soap operas, and (using) the products of technological progress, which should simplify and improve the quality of life, but distract attention away from what is really important.'"
