Most catholic priests and nuns are addicted to pornographic content, the church has said.

Pope Francis is now warning the men of cloth and nuns from consuming adult content, adding that it “weakens the priestly heart”.

The Pope, said this when asked how digital and social media should be best used in the church.

“And on this (subject) there’s also another thing, which you know well: digital pornography,”

“The devil enters from there,” Pope Francis, 86 told priests and seminarians in Rome.

He added that pornography is common with “so many people, [including] priests and nuns.”

“Each of you thinks if you’ve had the experience or had the temptation of digital pornography. It’s a vice that so many people have, so many laymen, so many lay women, and even priests and nuns,” Pope Francis said as quoted by SBS News.

The Pope asked priests and nuns to “delete” any pornographic content from their gadgets adding that it is ungodly.

“The pure heart, the one that Jesus receives every day, cannot receive this pornographic information,” he said.

“Delete this from your phone, so you will not have temptation in hand”.

The Pope also told priests not to spend too much time on social media, obsessively watching the news, and listening to music.

The church sees pornography as an offence against chastity.
