Pope Francis gave his annual Christmas address to the priests, bishops and cardinals that run the Roman Catholic Church. And it wasn’t all warm and fuzzy.

The pope chastised them for workplace ills that include office gossip, jealousy and pandering to the bosses, according to the New York Times.

It’s reassuring to know these things happen pretty much everywhere.
