A Romanian bishop has ordered his priests to lose weight.
Bishop Calinic fears his priests' fat tummies suggest they enjoy too many worldly pleasures.
He wants them to extend their fast over lent and recommends extended prayer sessions to reduce weight.
The bishop, in charge of the Arges region, said: "Oversized bellies only prove to people that priests have a good life and are not concentrating on their holy mission."
