Beauty advice from Pope Francis: Be virtuous like Mary
Vatican City, Dec 8, 2017 CNA/EWTN News.- On Friday's Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Francis offered his own 'beauty secret' - with Mary as model - saying beauty does not come from age or appearance, but from living a virtuous life rooted in scripture.
"There is only one thing that really does grow old: not age, but sin. Sin makes (us) old, because it fossilizes the heart. It closes it, makes it inert, it makes it fade. But the (woman) full of grace is empty of sin." - Pope Francis
