In interview to Argentina radio, Pope says Church can't be 'quiet'

People take pictures of Pope Francis as he arrives for his weekly audience in the Paul VI hall in the Vatican.

Pope Francis today granted an interview to a community radio from the Santiago del Estero province. In a relaxed tone, the Argentine pontiff took the chance to question what he called “destructive criticism” damaging the Church, the country and people.

“When the Churcha remains quiet it stops being the Church, it becomes a civil association”, the head of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics told his interviewers, two priests hosting a show in a local community radio in the Santiago del Estero province.

“One of the things that hurts the Church, the nation and people the most is destructive criticism, I mean, talking behind people’s back, that is not Christian”, the pope considered.
