Pope Francis warns of dangers of vanity and suggests "only the truth gives us peace"

Posted on September 25, 2014 at 8:46 AM
 
Pope Francis delivered yet another incredibly powerful homily today as he tackled the issue of vanity.
 
The pope stressed that "only the truth gives us peace" as he warned of the dangers of vanity.  He cited the example of "those who put on too much make-up, and then are afraid the rain will come and all that make-up will come streaming down.”  The pope suggested that these people are never at peace and that they must seek the truth if they are to find peace.
 
The pope also warned people that when they help the poor, they mustn't "sound the trumpet".  On the contrary, "do it secretly. The Father sees it, and that is enough”.  What beautiful, and true, words from our Holy Father!

The accompanying three sections is the fundamental body and each of them is begun with a point sentence: an outline of the entire passage. Each thought is manufactured, created and improved with supporting subtle elements to bring out what the author needs to pass on to his gathering of people.
