He said: “Each of you think if you’ve had the experience or had the temptation of digital pornography.

“It’s a vice that so many people have, so many laymen, so many laywomen, and even priests and nuns.”

The Pope, 85, asked his audience to delete lewd images from their phones “so you won’t have temptation in your hand”.

He added: “It weakens the priestly heart.

“The devil enters from there.”

It comes after the religious leader declared online porn a threat to public health in June.
