The Pope rebuked the parishioners for phones in ChurchUncategorized November 9, 2017
He said he gets upset when a lot of people holding phones, and priests and bishops even photographed.
Francis does not use mobile phone in public and has asked the youth to carry the Bible instead of phones.
“At some point, the priest who conducts the ceremony says, “hold your heart”, he says – “bring your phones to take pictures” (…) So sad, but when I do a mass here in the Basilica or see as holding a lot of phones and not only faithful, but also priests and bishops! Oh, please,” said the Pontiff.
While the Pope has accounts on Twitter and Instagram, subscribed to by tens of thousands of people.
