Bishop Francis Loves Soundbites
“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”.
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.
In the meantime, sodomy advances all over the West.
The bishop is mainly concerned with not condemning.
