In an interview with 16 Jesuit publications, Pope Francias said  “the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards” if it continues to focus on narrow issues such as abortion, gay marriage and contraception.

“I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful,” he said in the 12,000-word interview that was also published in America magazine. It needs nearness, proximity.”
