Pope says priests' homilies too often 'boring, endless'
Francis calls for better quality preaching04 October, 17:07
In off-the-cuff remarks during a visit to Assisi, the pope warned his clergy to think carefully about the content of their sermons.
Enough of "these (kinds of) homilies - endless, tedious, in which you do not understand anything," Francis said at a meeting with clergy in Assisi's Cathedral of San Rufino.
The pope was in Assisi to mark the feast day of the 13th-century saint he took his name from.
