Pope Francis during his address in St Peter’s Square on Sunday after his Angelus recitation told the faithfuls of the importance of turning away from all activities of fortune-telling and horoscopes, he emphasized that Jesus alone holds the future and Jesus is the one worth turning to not fortune tellers.
“(Jesus) wants to direct his disciples of every age from curiosity abut dates, predictions, horoscopes, and concentrate their attention on the today of history,” Pope Francis said.
“I would like to ask you — but don’t answer out loud; each one answer to himself — how many are there among us who read the horoscope every day? Each one answer, and when you feel like reading your horoscope, look to Jesus who is with us. This is better and will serve us better. The central nucleus around which the words of Jesus turns is he himself, the mystery of his person, and of his death and resurrection, and his return at the end of time.”
“The Lord Jesus is not just a destination point of our earthly pilgrimage, but also constant presence in our lives. He counters the false profits, the fortune tellers that predict that the end of the world is near; he counters fatalism. He is at our side; he walks with us; he loves us so much.” said Pope Francis.
