Pope warns priests against temptations of pornography

Pope Francis has given his view on what can weaken the priestly journey. Francis warned seminarians in Rome of the dangers of online pornography. Watching them repeatedly can weaken the priestly heart.

When asked, however, about how digital and social media should be best used to "share the joy of being Christians", the pope cautioned against obsessively watching the news, listening to music that distracts from one's work -- before broaching a more serious risk.

On online ponography, Pope Francis said that it's what has taken attention of like everyone. This has gone an extra mile to affect even priest and nuns.

It's not the first time Pope is condemning this act. Most recently, he did so on June when he called it a permanent attack on the dignity of men and women, saying it should be declared a threat to public health.

As quoted, he said "Dear brothers, be careful of this. The pure heart, the heart that receives Jesus every day, cannot receive this pornographic information."
