His tender invitation – rest a while – should accompany us.”“Let us put a halt to the frantic running around dictated by our agendas,” he said.“Let us learn how to take a break, to turn off the mobile phone.”The post ”Rest a while…as God intended, turn off your cell phones ”- Pope Francis tells everyone in first Vatican appearance since surgery appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

  1. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
    was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance
    is very much appreciated.

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Bless you!
