Pope Francis: There is ‘no point’ going to church if you don’t really believe in it
Pope speaks out against ‘Christian parrots’ who talk about religion but don’t do good deeds, and says forgiveness can be difficult but is necessary in all cases, including domestic violence
Pope Francis has said there is “no point” in people going to church if they do not follow the teachings of the Bible in their daily lives.
The head of the Catholic church took a stand against what he termed “Christian parrots”, who talk a lot about their religion but don’t do good deeds.
“If I say I am Catholic and go to mass, but then don’t speak with my parents, help my grandparents or the poor, go and see those who are sick, this does not prove my faith, there’s no point,” he told young residents of Guidonia, a village near Rome.
