Bishop Francis Loves Soundbites

the bishop of Rome thought the vehicle appropriate for a priest.

the bishop of Rome thought this vehicle appropriate for a priest.

“Today…we have fallen into the hypocritical attitude of the priest and of the servant of the altar that Jesus speaks about in the parable of the Good Samaritan: We look upon the brother half dead by the roadside, perhaps we think ‘poor guy’, and we continue on our way, it’s none of our business; and we feel fine with this. We feel at peace with this, we feel fine!”

Bishop Francis, Lampedusa, 2013

“God always wants this: mercy, and not [people] going around condemning everyone.”

Bishop Francis, Castel Gandolfo, 2013.

The bishop who shoots in the crowd (and it’s a very large crowd) saying how hypocritical we all are, is the same bishop who then says we must not “go around condemning everyone”. 

Funny world.

The bishop is in love with soundbites, but I am more and more persuaded that his biggest love story is with himself and his own “humbleness”.

For the moment, he is so humble that he humbly gives another two slaps to his predecessors, refusing to reside for the summer in the beautiful summer palace at Castel Gandolfo and being driven there for the day in a Ford Focus.  Ah, these Renaissance Princes with their custom-made Mercedes, how un-humble they were. 

He is so obsessed with appearing humble that he has not greeted the people in Castel Gandolfo from the window in the upper floor, but from the main gate. So almost no one could see him, but I am sure he felt good with himself.

Even Father Z cannot avoid the quips and wonders how long before he is censored for wearing cufflinks, or writes very humourously about the choice of a suitable vehicle.

In the meantime, sodomy advances all over the West.

The bishop is mainly concerned with not condemning.

  1. Oh dear. I’m sure he doesn’t mean to do this.

  2. Haunting closing statement, and so very true. While he chides young priests for being “spinsters” (just plain weird) a few days ago (See Rorate), and the rest of us for condemning everyone else, sodomy gains a stranglehold on the West and the bishop of Rome is stunning by his silence on the matter.

    • I think he said not to be “spinsters” and “bachelors” to the nuns and priests.

      One truly must make a huge effort to try to concoct some form of weird interpretation that might make sense halfway. And when he has found it, he realises even more how badly he expresses himself if he really wanted to say it.

      I wonder if he knows the Ten Commandments by heart. Wouldn’t be surprised if this was not the case.

  3. Mundabor,
    the greatest hypocrites are generally those who call others hypocrites. Many prideful people pride themselves on their supposed “humility”. The new Bishop of Rome does not seem to be very saintly at all, more like a caricature of sanctity.

    He is silent on homosexual “marriage”. A man in his position who does not even say anything against the spread of perversion thereby signals his secret approval. It does raise some questions about the Bishop of Rome himself. Either he is a coward, or a homosexual or (as Michael Voris would call it) a “gay positive” activist. By the way, apart from some veiled references easily ignored by everybody and forgiven by his friends in the atheist media, he is also silent about abortion, not saying the word even once in four months. He had a lot of practice demolishing his diocese both morally and spiritually. His country passed both legalized child-murder and homosexual “marriage” under his watch with minimal public resistance on his part.

    He has improved his abilities with age, now applying them to the universal Church.

    Lex orandi – lex credendi: The Bishop of Rome celebrates man in his ugly modernist liturgies. Accordingly he places man, not God, in the center of his world-view. In his belief, he is an activist trying to achieve universal worldly peace and paradise on earth. In order to succeed at this he needs to stamp out the Traditional Catholic Faith, because it is opposed to a “new world order” in which people of good will, regardless of their religion or lack of it, subordinate their different “spiritual paths” to the goal of material advancement. He believes as he prays: The new liturgical order and the new religion go hand in hand.

    In the same way, the actions flow from his beliefs (liberty, equality, fraternity – in short: the revolution). Modernism is an integrated world-view, just like Catholicism.

    Suenens said Vatican II was the 1789 of the Church. He was right. It was. The Spirit of VII and the Spirit of 1789 are one and the same. Now the Church has her own Robespierre, the perfect embodiment of the Spirit of 1789.

    It is becoming very clear which spirit inspired the Cardinals to elect this man, and it’s not the Holy Spirit.

    Sorry, if this is too harsh…

    Exit question: If Francis is Robespierre, who will be Napoleon…? ;)

    • It’s hard to read, Catocon, but not harsh.
      I want to hope the bishop is merely so much in love with himself that he forgerà the Papacy for the sake of his popularity, but when I read what you write I must reluctantly agree it makes a lot of sense.

      Catholicism is simply in the way of Jesuits’ social engineering. The bishop is one of them, nd he is not much different from the worst of them.

      I should never have worn the habit. As abundantly shown by the fact he has the Papacy, and has been sabotaging it from day one.

      We will stay faithful to the Church. She survived Leo X, she will survive Francis The Oh So Humble.

  4. P.s. Seriously no idea who will be the Napoleon. There could be a couple of Consalvi, but these days there are very few one can trust.

    I am sure the Blessed Virgin looks on things from above. To me, this is at least enough to sleep.
