Pope Francis cautioned of the danger to split the Catholic Church by “a disease worse than Covid.”
The devil is the “biggest gossiper” trying to confuse the church with his lies, said the Pope, and cautioned the believers not to squabble or publically dispel their grievances.

“Let’s try not to whisper brothers and sisters, please,” the Pontiff urged. “Gossip is worse than Covid ‘s disease. Worse yet. Worse. Let’s make a great effort: no gossip! Although the Pope gave no estimates, the gossiping “plage” undoubtedly affects considerably more than the terrifying coronavirus.
About 26 million Covid-19 incidents, including more than 880,000 deaths, have been reported worldwide. If “something goes wrong,” one should give “silence and prayer” instead of making public the issue, Francis said: the devil is the “greatest gossip” at last.
“The big gossip is the devil.

The Roman Catholic Church relies for a long time on a definition of this “fraternal reform” in its hierarchies, without publicising internal church affairs. Nevertheless, church opponents have protested against it repeatedly arguing that such measures fostering the crime of sin within the church, including child violence.
