From Associated Press:
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Saturday advised against making the pursuit of money, a career or success the basis for one’s whole life, urging in his Epiphany remarks to also resist “inclinations toward arrogance, the thirst for power and for riches.”
During a homily at Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, Francis said people “often make do” with having “health, a little money and a bit of entertainment.” He urged people to help the poor and others in need of assistance, giving freely without expecting anything in return. “Some stars may be bright, but do not point the way. So it is with success, money, career, honors and pleasures, when these become our lives,” the Pope said, adding that path won’t ensure peace and joy.
