    1. "Live and let live."

    2. "Be giving of yourself to others."

    3. "Proceed calmly" in life.

    4. Have "a healthy sense of leisure."

    5. "Sunday is for family."

    6. Be "creative" with young people and find innovative ways to create dignified jobs.

    7. Respect and take care of nature.

    8. Stop being negative. "Letting go of negative things quickly is healthy," he said.

    9. "The worst thing of all is religious proselytism, which paralyzes."

    10. Work for peace. "We are living in a time of many wars," he said. "The call for peace must be shouted."

    I like this guy. #9 is important.

      Aside from proceeding calmly in life, which I still work on minute by minute, I'm as Catholic as the Pope.  Who knew?!?! wink

      He applied for the position, but he's been educated in the wrong faith. wink

        I simply find his points on life more profound. It isn't anything against Catholicism so settle down there, rad man.

          As you may know the previous Popes have not exactly gotten my endorsement. This one I'm keeping an eye on. I do believe the Popes to be powerless to effect any real change, but this one is at the very least a step in the right direction.

            I like Catholic people. The church is not something I have any respect for, so I don't pay much attention to anything from the Vatican. This pope seems like a nice guy, but he is the pope; so that's a strike against him.
