Francis Listens Only to Small Circle of Beloved Friends - Cardinal Müller

The activists of the German Synod are "political functionaries" who sit at the "feeding troughs of power" and feast on the fleshpots, said the Regensburg Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis to the German state broadcaster (31 January).

Really Catholic, she said, were those good pious people who go to church. They do not want to change the Church and have nothing in common with the synod members.

On the same programme, Cardinal Gerhard Müller commented on Francis. For a private person, he said, it was legitimate to deal only with his "beloved friends". In contrast, a pope should not only listen to his small circle of friends.

Gloria, "The people who want to change the church are people who never go to church. The people who actually go to church every Sunday have nothing in common with these synodical people. One are political functionaries who sit at the feeding troughs of power and at the flesh pots and feast on that. And the others are the good, pious people who go to church and are actually Catholic."

Most apparently authentic biographical profiles of Bergoglio indicate that he never had what one would call close or 'beloved friends'. At present, they are either sycophants or 'partners in chaos'.
And the small circle probably has to listen to him only

Your excellency, it is not BerGOGlio who listen to anyone in the Church. It is BerGOGlio who listen to his masters from Davos.

@Ivan Tomas --Fr. James MArtin is also his Master.

Prophecy of two “worm ridden popes”?

@Louis IX- Pope Francis is filled with worms, hot air and gas.
