Pope Francis, on April 26, presiding over the ordination of 19 Rome Diocese seminarians to the priesthood, warned them against being vain and living for their own pleasure. He also told them not to be a peacock. He also told them not to give boring sermons and not to refuse to give baptism to one who asks for it.
