POPE’S MESSAGE | Break the mirror of narcissistic culture

Pope Francis led an audience with members of the Shalom Catholic Community Sept. 4 at the Vatican. Speaking to young people of the community, Pope Francis warned of the sadness caused by narcissism.

VATICAN CITY — Today's narcissistic culture leads to sad souls who worry more about keeping up appearances than caring for others, Pope Francis said.

Speaking to young people of the Shalom community, Pope Francis warned them of the sadness caused by narcissism, when "you live worried about putting makeup on your soul, about looking better than you are, about contemplating whether you're more beautiful than others."

"It is the sickness of the mirror," the pope said. "Young people, break this mirror!"
