Religion Breaking News: Pope Stresses the Importance of Family in Brazil Speech

by Wochit 1:10 mins

In a speech in Brazil, Pope Francis stressed the importance of family and grandparents in particular. ?How precious is the family as the privileged place for transmitting the faith,? the Pope said, according to an English-language version of his Angelus address released by Vatican spokesman. Pope Francis, who was speaking to a crowd at the archbishop?s residence in Rio de Janeiro, said the dialogue between generations was ?a treasure to be preserved and strengthened.? The "slum pope" returned to the slum as Pope Francis visited one of Rio de Janeiro's favelas, telling its residents that the wealthy must do more to end the "culture of selfishness" that has left the poor on the margins of society. Pope Francis urged Catholics to resist the "ephemeral idols" of money, power and pleasure in celebrating the first public Mass of his initial international foreign journey as pontiff during an emotional visit to one of the most important shrines in Latin America.
