When the Pope talks, you better listen. And when he gives you homework, you best do it.
Earlier this month, Pope Francis told a group of Italian children they should frequently listen to their grandparents, ask them questions, and tell them their dreams.
“They remember history, have life experience and, for you, this will be a great gift that will help you in your journey,” the Pope told hundreds of youngsters who were members of the Catholic Action’s children section.
“I’m giving your homework,” said the 80-year-old Pontiff. “Speak often with your grandparents. They, too, have this contagious joy. Ask them lots of things, listen to them. And be sure to tell them your dreams, too.”
