Religion as a “little convent” of ideology

“When a religion becomes a ‘little convent’, it loses the best that it has; it loses its reality of adoring God, of believing in God. It’s a little convent of words, of prayers, of "I’m good and you’re bad,’ of moral regulations. I have my ideology, my way of thinking, and you have yours; I close myself in this ‘little convent’ of ideology.”—Pope Francis
