Pope Francis confesses-“Pornography is a vice, even nuns and priests watch”

At an interaction in the Vatican City, Pope Francis said that pornography was a vice, from which even nuns and priests were not free of.

Pope Francis admits on pornography among nuns

VATICAN-(MaraviPost)-Head of the Catholic Church Pope Francis on Wednesday, October 26, launched a fresh attack on the “dangers of online pornography”.

He said that it was a vice that many, including priests and nuns had. He has been regularly warning people against consuming pornographic content.

In June, Pope Francis called for pornography to be declared a “threat to public health”.

Pope Francis was speaking at an interaction with priests and seminarians studying in Rome on how digital and social media should be best used.

“Each of you think if you’ve had the experience or had the temptation of digital pornography. It’s a vice that so many people have, so many laymen, so many laywomen, and even priests and nuns,” The Indian Express quoted Pope Francis from a Vatican City transcript.

“The devil enters from there: it weakens the priestly heart. Excuse me for going down to these details about pornography, but there is a reality: a reality that touches priests, seminarians, nuns, consecrated souls,” The Hindustan Times quoted him as saying.

The 86-year-old pontiff urged everyone to delete any digital pornographic material from their phones to “avoid any temptation”.
