Pope Francis met with about 230 hairdressers, stylists, and beauticians at the Vatican on Monday. KAMI learned that the Argentine pontiff urged them to cut off gossiping while at work.
“Practice your profession in a Christian style, treating customers with kindness and courtesy, and always offering them a good word and encouragement,” Pope Francis said, as reported by the GMA News.
“Avoiding giving in to the temptation of gossip that easily creeps into your work environment, that we all know about.” he continued, according to a report by the Vatican News (author Robin Gomes).
The pontiff also encouraged the hairdressers and beauticians to follow the example of Saint Martin de Porres, the patron saint of barbers, innkeepers, and racial harmony.
Born in Lima, Peru on December 9, 1579, St. Martin died on November 3, 1639. He was declared a saint by St. Pope John XXIII in 1962.
