Pope Francis places 'forbidden to complain' sign on his door

Pope Francis, a regular denouncer of gossip and intrigue inside the Vatican, has hung a sign outside his private study warning whiners to stay away.

"Complaining Not Allowed" (in Italian, Vietato Lamentarsi), reads the sign, which was recently spotted on the pope's door by long-time Italian Vatican watcher Andrea Tornielli.

The sign's small print warns offenders "are subject to developing a victim complex, resulting in a lowering. of their capacity to solve problems". The sign is accompanieBNd by the worldwide symbol for "no" - a reverse slash in a circle.

The sign was produced by Italian psychologist and psychotherapist Salvo Noé, who gave it to the pontiff after a June 14 weekly audience.

It adds: "The penalty is doubled if the violation takes place in the presence of children". Possibly giving the best advice, it ended with: "Stop complaining and take steps to improve your life". The Pope apparently appreciated the gift and promised to place it on the door outside of his apartment.

Pope Francis has had plenty of complainers in the Vatican and in the Church since his election in 2013.

Though Francis's approach to Catholicism has gained many fans, some conservatives have faulted him for shaking up traditional Church doctrine.

Mueller later told a German newspaper that the way he was treated was "unacceptable".
