Pope to Comedians: Help Us Dream of a Better World

This week, we turn our attention to Pope Francis's inspiring message to comedians, urging them to use their talents to help create a more hopeful and joyful world. In a recent meeting, Pope Francis highlighted the importance of laughter and joy in overcoming life's challenges and fostering a sense of community. He encouraged comedians to continue bringing light into people's lives and to use their platforms for positive change.

Key Words:

  1. Joy (n.) - A feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

    • Example: Comedians bring joy to their audiences through their performances.

  2. Laughter (n.) - The action or sound of laughing.

    • Example: Laughter can be a powerful tool for easing tension and building connections.

  3. Community (n.) - A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
