Pope holds video chat with disabled children
February 06, 2015
Pope Francis took part in a video chat with disabled children on February 5 and emphasized the importance of communication.
“When you communicate, you give the best you have inside, and you receive the best from others, and that is very important,” he said. “When we don’t communicate, we stay alone with our limitations, and that is bad for us.”
The Pontiff also said, “I'm a disaster with machines. I don't know how to work a computer. What a shame!”
The chat took place under the auspices of Scholas Occurentes, a charity he founded in 2013 to promote human values and education for the disadvantaged.
