In his Thursday morning mass, Pope Francis warned against letting the pursuit of success overtake everything else in life. He said that when Christians live only for themselves, their lives can easily become failures.
“A person can win everything, but in the end become a failure. You might say, ‘But no, they built him a monument, they painted his portrait …’ Perhaps, but he failed beacuse he didn’t choose right from wrong.”
He said people must consider God and others when making decisions. The Pope recommended people slow down, reflect and remember that God is not an enemy but someone trying to help.
