Pope outlines 15 illnesses for church to guard against

Francis gives hard-hitting address in Christmas greeting

(ANSA) - Vatican City, December 22 - Pope Francis on Monday outlined 15 illnesses that he said all churches must guard against as he gave his Christmas greetings to the Roman Curia.
    These included "feeling immortal", "spiritual Alzheimer's", "existential schizophrenia" and the "terrorism of gossip" the pope said in a hard-hitting address to the Roman Curia - the administrative apparatus of the Holy See and the central governing body through which the pope conducts the business of the Catholic Church. "It's nice to think of the Roman Curia as a little model church, that is a body that every day seeks to become more unified and harmonious, a complex body with many different elements that don't have the same job, but are coordinated to work in an exemplary, effective way, despite the diversity of its members". http://popefrancisnewsapp.com/
