教皇呼吁重视周日不工作的传统

Pope says working on Sundays has negative impact on families and friendships and that priorities in life should be 'not economic but human'

Pontiff says priorities should be human, not economic

And questioned whether working on Sunday's was true freedom

He appeared to have bounced back from a spate of recent illnesses

Pope Francis has lamented the abandoning of the traditionally Christian practice of not working on Sundays, saying it has a negative impact on families and friendships.

Pope Francis made the comments yesterday during a visit to Molise, in southern Italy, where unemployment is chronically high. 

While he said poor people need jobs to have dignity, he indicated that opening stores and other businesses on Sundays wasn't beneficial for society.

Pope Francis said the priority should be 'not economic but human,' and that the stress should be on families and friendships, not commercial relationships.

He added: 'Maybe it's time to ask ourselves if working on Sundays is true freedom.'

He said that spending Sundays with family and friends is an 'ethical choice' for faithful and non-faithful alike.

Pope Francis, 77, appeared to have bounced back from a spate of illnesses which have caused him to cancel several appointments recently.

He flew by helicopter to Molise for a full day of activity, including a lunch appointment with poor people and a prison visit.

The pontiff moved energetically and smiled often as he greeted crowds. The Vatican had described his health problems as 'mild' but did not elaborate.

At one point during the visits the pope encouraged parents to spend more time playing with their children.

He quipped: 'Waste time with your children!'

据英国《每日邮报》7月6日报道,梵蒂冈教皇佛朗西斯在周日到访意大利南部城市莫利塞时为传统基督教徒在周日不休息而倍感失望。

尽管莫利塞失业数字呈历年上升趋势,教皇却坚持认为商店和其他生意在周日照常营业于社会不利。

教皇说,人们最为重要的东西应该是“人而并非经济”,因此我们应该把重心放在家庭和友谊上,而非仅仅是单纯的商业关系。

他随即补充道:“也许是时候问问我们自己,在周日工作是否意味着真正的自由?”

他还称与家人和朋友共度周日无论对虔诚的基督教徒或是非教徒而言都是“道德上的选择”。

他同时鼓励父母多与他们的孩子玩耍,并幽默道:“要在你们的孩子身上浪费时间!”

教皇是乘坐直升飞机来到莫利塞与当地的穷人一起共进午餐的。他当天的行程还包括参观一所监狱。

教皇佛朗西斯现年77岁,近日由于身体原因取消了一系列的活动。梵蒂冈并未进一步对教皇的身体状况进行解释,他们只称他身有微恙。
