The Pope has posted on Twitter, saying that gossiping is a "worse plague" than coronavirus.
He’s been delivering an address for years, from a window above St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City – as he does every week.
This Sunday, he said, “Please, brothers and sisters, let’s make an effort not to gossip. Gossiping is a worse plague than COVID.”
He also added: “The devil is the great gossip. He is always saying bad things about others because he is the liar who tries to split the Church.”
It seems that the Pope was trying to stop people from gossiping because he believes that gossiping is the work of Satan.
People on social media tried to figure out what he was actually trying to say – and what might have prompted this strong statement.

Either way, if the Pope wanted to stop people from gossiping, it may not have worked – most people will probably have just moved their gossiping about the Pope in to thee group chat,
