Pope Francis has warned the Catholic Church would become “a compassionate NGO” without spiritual renewal, reports the BBC. In a Sistine Chapel Mass with cardinals on his first day as Church leader, the pontiff said: "If we do not confess to Christ, what would we be? "We would end up a compassionate NGO. What would happen would be like when children make sand castles and then it all falls down."http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/cathnews/RSS/~4/pLGwB0PslJs
