Pope warns of idle chatter rooted in envy
'Weapon of the devil' says Francis in homily23 January, 12:59
In his homily at a Vatican guesthouse where he has been living since his election to replace Benedict XVI last spring, he invited Christians "to shut the door to jealousy, envy and idle chatter" that "destroy our communities".
"Idle chatter conceals jealousy and envy and it divides community, it destroys community. It is the weapon of the devil," he concluded.
