He Pope Francisco sent a strong message to all the priests in the world to modify a characteristic practice of the Mass. During his weekly general audience in San Pedro Square, he noted that some leaders “talk a lot.”

He leader of the Catholic Church urged priests around the world to make the homily last no more than eight minutes. According to the religious reference, if the comment that follows a reading of the gospel scriptures extends too much, “people fall asleep with reason.”

At the same time, he pointed out that some priests “talk a lot” and the message they seek to convey is not fully understood. This is why the pontiff indicated that the homily should be brief: “an image, a thought, a feeling”he explained.

“This is how a homily should be and that is what I want to say to priests who talk so much, so often, and it is not understood what they are talking about,” the pope declared.
