The internet is a gift
Francis understands your Facebook habit. “The internet … offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God.” But the pope also warns against the dangers of isolating ourselves, “We need tenderness,” he advises. The internet can help with that to a point, keeping us close to loved ones, but break up your social media marathon with active time outdoors or in person human contact. The internet can be a great tool, but don’t let too much screen time consume your life.
