On his way to celebrate Mass in the Italian city of Trieste, Pope Francis could be seen greeting the sick.

To bid farewell to Trieste, the Pope celebrated this Mass in the heart of the city. Here, he stressed the need for an active Christianity that knows how to shake free of problems like consumerism.

POPE FRANCIS
Have you ever thought if consumerism has entered your heart? That desire to have, to have things, to have more. That craving to waste money. Consumerism is a plague, it is a cancer. It sickens your heart, it makes you selfish.

The Pope also received an encouraging applause when he acknowledged that he was having trouble reading his homily because of the sun.

POPE FRANCIS
Sorry for reading like this but the sun moves everything.

Before departing, the Pope encouraged the citizens of Trieste to courageously face the challenge of welcoming migrants who traveled through the Balkans.
