Listen to the voice of the Lord, Pope Francis says

VATICAN CITY—Not listening to God’s voice can distance Christians from him and lead them instead to seek solace in worldly idols that offer only doubt and confusion, Pope Francis said.

Why so angry?

Just about every day drivers get cut off by lane-jumpers and see people making angry gestures. The networks bring up-to-the-minute reports of violence and the shouts of mobs.
