With all the scandals the Catholic church has seen in recent years, the Pope may have just stirred the pot on another one.
Pope Francis made a rather shocking admission while speaking to a group of seminarians.
He admitted that priests and nuns are watching porn, but recommended they delete it from their phones if they are doing it as well.
Pope Francis told the group of hopeful priests, "Priests and nuns also have the vice of porn on the web.
"Beware: the devil enters from there and weakens the soul.
"If you have them on your mobile phone, delete them."
Pope Francis continued, "It is a vice that has so many people, so many lay people, and also priests and nuns.
"The devil enters from there.
"And I'm not just talking about criminal pornography such as child abuse: that is already degeneracy.
"But of somewhat 'normal' pornography. Dear brothers, beware of this."
The Pope concluded, "That, today, is the order of the day. And if you can delete this from your mobile phone, delete it.
"Excuse me if I go into these details about pornography, but there is a reality: a reality that touches priests, seminarians, nuns, consecrated souls.
"Have you understood? All right. This is important."
I don't know how well that proclamation is going to sit with a lot of Catholics, especially those with young children being taught by these people.
