Pope Francis’ 10 Commandments He recently shared his top 10 secrets to a happy life. He advised people to slow down and enjoy a healthy sense of leisure, to take care of nature, and to respect other people’s beliefs, among others. Five this week five next week
1. Live and let live 2. “Be giving of yourself to others…If you withdraw into yourself, you run the risk of becoming egocentric. and stagnant water become putrid 3. Proceed calmly in life. to have “the ability to move with kindness and humility, a calmness in life.” 4. A healthy sense of leisure…Consumerism has brought us anxiety, causing us to lose a healthy culture of leisure. Even though many parents work long hours, they must set aside time to play with their children; work schedules make it complicated, but you must do it, he said Families must also turn off the TV when they sit down to eat 5. Sundays should be holidays. Workers should have Sundays off because “Sunday is for God and family,” he said. More next week
