Pope Francis fires warning shot to ladder-climbing professional Catholics

Pope Francis to future diplomats: No to careerism

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Thursday spoke to the members of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy, which is dedicated to training priests to serve in the diplomatic corps and the Secretariat of State of the Holy See. In his address, the Holy Father reminded the students that they must cultivate a deep spiritual life in order to attain the “inner freedom” that is necessary for their future work.

He also warned against ambition, and once again denounced careerism, which he called “a leprosy.” (Source)

Yikes, leprosy?
