Pope Francis told thousands of teenagers that happiness is not an app you can download on your mobile phone, on Sunday (April 24) at a mass to mark a weekend dedicated to youth.
He used the reference to connect to teens aged 13-16 who are converging on Rome for a Holy Year weekend for teenagers.
During his homily Sunday in St. Peter’s Square, he told a crowd of 100,000 that;
“Freedom is not always about doing what you want. In fact it is the gift of being able to choose the right way,” he said in a homily punctuated by regular bursts of applause from the crowd on a packed St Peter’s Square.
