"Happiness can't be downloaded like a Smartphone App," Pope Francis to teenagers.









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.

'Apostle killed my wife' - Husband of late gospel artiste

The husband of the Edo State based gospel artiste who died in a hotel room has blamed the man of God who invited her there as being behind her murder.

The husband of the late gospel singer who was found dead in a hotel room in Edo State, Yvonne Omoarebokhae, Odion, has called out Apostle Psalm Okpe,  the General Overseer of the Fresh Oil Ministry, a Lagos based pentecostal church, saying the man of God drugged and murdered his wife after he invited her to the hotel in preparation for a concert he allegedly told her he was organizing.

According to the bereaved husband, his wife did not die of a cardiac arrest as revealed by a post mortem carried out on the corpse but that the pastor murdered her after he had drugged her.
