Worldliness poses danger to priestly identity, says Pope [CNAU]

The biggest threat to priests is the temptation to be more immersed in the world than the Gospel, says Pope Francis in his newly translated book, repors the Catholic News Agency.


This is very true! When we go to church we want to hear about God, not about politics or what psychology says. Everywhere we go, we can get a worldly opinion on anything - there is only one place we can hear about God. The priest cannot give into the world. The priest must not ’ flirt’ with the world either. The world is passing away.
