Pope tells Catholics not to follow ideologies
Francis sees ideological Christians as a 'serious illness'17 October, 11:45
"If a Christian becomes the disciple of ideology, he has lost his faith," Francis said in a Mass at Saint Martha's House, the Vatican guesthouse being used as a residence by the humble, simple-living pope instead of the papal apartments.
"He is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this way of thinking.
"Ideology distances people and the Church.
"The phenomenon of ideological Christians is a serious illness".
