(CATHOLIC HERALD) — “Corrupt” Christians cause grave damage to the Church, Pope Francis said at Mass this morning.

In his homily in the chapel of his residence, the Domus Sanctae Marthae, he said there were “three types of Christians in the Church: sinners, the corrupt and saints”.

Reflecting on the Parable of the Tenants in today’s readings, he said that the corrupt were represented by those in the parable who want to “take possession of the vineyard and have lost their relationship with the Lord of the vineyard”.
