Pope, in Thailand, cautions youth against tech pitfalls

Pope Francis warned against the potential pitfalls of technology and the competition for young people’s “attention” yesterday, dedicating the final full day of his Thailand trip to engaging the next generation of Catholics. “Rapid technological advancements can open up immense possibilities that make life easier, but can also result in the growth of consumerism and materialism,” the Pope cautioned. There are fewer than 400,000 Catholics in Thailand which make up just over 0.5 percent of the population. The Pope has called for religious harmony and peace throughout his four-day Thai tour, a message he will likely carry today to Japan where he will visit the sites of the world’s only nuclear attacks.
