Pope Urges Church Leaders to Shun Devil's Temptations

Pope Francis urged Roman Catholic leaders on Friday never to give in to pessimism and discouragement, but to keep their eyes on the true mission of the Church.

"Let us never give in to the pessimism, to that bitterness, that the devil places before us every day. Let us not give into pessimism and discouragement," he told cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel to greet him.
