Pope Francis: Churches with closed doors must be called museums!

After I found the doors of another church when I visited it to pray about a week and a half ago, I suggested several ways pastors might keep the doors open so the faithful might enter into the presence of their Eucharistic King outside of the times the Holy Mass is offered.

During his General Audience address this morning, His Holiness Pope Francis once again called for the doors of our churches to be open to the faithful. He said,
A Church that is truly according to the Gospel cannot but have the form of a welcoming home, with the doors always open. Churches, parishes, institutions with closed doors must not be called Churches; they must be called museums!
Please, Fathers, open the doors!
