Pope to Youth in Sarajevo: On the Use of TV and Internet

When asked by a young man if it’s true that he doesn’t watch the television and what he thinks about the internet, the Pope answered appealing to the tv show producers to make shows with content that would help people prepare for their life. He also appealed to the personal responsibility of each one saying: “You must LEARN HOW TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WATCH. If I see that a program is NOT GOOD FOR ME, HURTS MY VALUES, makes me vulgar or has vulgarity, I HAVE TO CHANGE THE CHANNEL.” As for the use of internet, the Pope said: “IF YOU YOUNG PEOPLE BECOME ATTACHED THE COMPUTER, AND BECOME A SLAVE TO THE COMPUTER, YOU LOSE YOUR FREEDOM. And if you look at dirty content on the computer, you lose your dignity. WATCH TV AND USE THE COMPUTER, BUT FOR THE GOOD THINGS, THE BIG THINGS, THE THINGS THAT MAKE US GROW.” (Pope Francis, Sarajevo, June 6, 2015)

Dear friends, this could be a CONCRETE RESOLUTION as we prepare ourselves for the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let us be more PRUDENT in the use of television and internet, avoiding anything which might offend the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ and make us lose our freedom and dignity as children of God. We ask this through the help of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: Mother of Fair Love, Most Pure and Chaste, pray for us!
