Francis' Self-Condemnation: “We Consider Ourselves Justified When Judging Others Harshly”

Francis who segregates and discriminates Catholics condemned "segregation" and "discrimination" claiming that “no one should be kept away from the Church,” while speaking to Roma in Košice, Slovakia.

“It is not easy to leave prejudice behind, even for Christians, it is not easy to value others especially if we see them as problems or enemies, we pass judgement without making any effort to know them to or listen to their story” - he summarised his Traditionis Custodes without meaning to.

He continued speaking about himself, “We consider ourselves justified when we are harsh in our judgement of others, indulgent with ourselves but inflexible with others. How often are our judgements really prejudices, that is pre-judgements? How often do we resort to labels?“ It is a time-honoured tradition for popes to say "we" instead of "I".

" It is a time-honoured tradition for Popes to say "We" instead of "I"."

Yes it is. EXACTLY! I remember reading that it's because they are not speaking alone, they are speaking with the Holy Spirit.

The fact that Francis usually only speaks in the first person, speaks volumes to me, I don't know about anyone else. 🤥

Good grief!

"We consider ourselves justified when we are harsh in our judgement of others, indulgent with ourselves but inflexible with others. How often are our judgements really prejudices, that is pre-judgements? How often do we resort to labels?“

This would seem to be Francis confessing, crying for help with his own issues, and then walking away as if scapegoating the 'other' could actually…More

As he is using the Pronoun "We" I say it's the Holy Spirit admonishing Francis . Forcing him to make a public Confession of his sins against Christ and His Church.

No, I am not being facetious- that Confession is very precise. Every word of it applies to Francis.

...not to sound sinister, but aren't those afflicted by demons compelled to "reveal" themselves?

I recall something about that from an exorcist's talk.

"Marginalizing others accomplishes nothing. Segregating ourselves and other people eventually leads to anger. The path to peaceful coexistence is integration," Pope Francis said to Roma Community of Košice.

So this man is he who just published TraditionisCustodes, right?

He could have added that the Roma enclave of Lunik was created by the Communist government of Czechoslovakia, not by Christians...
Advocata
Has he ever criticised any Marxists or Communists?

@Advocata Not that I remember, but he has taken a few pot-shots at the Holy Ghost! He seems to not realise that when a true Pope proclaims an anathema - he did so by the supreme power of the Holy Ghost. Francis blasphemes the Holy Spirit by assuming He was proclaiming an anathema without meaning it to be upheld permanently. It is known that the Holy Ghost is omniscient and would not proclaim …More

Francis blasphemes the Holy Spirit by assuming He was proclaiming an anathema without meaning it to be upheld permanently. It is known that the Holy Ghost is omniscient and would not proclaim an anathema for none obedience to a Papal Decree "in aeternum" one minute and then alter His opinion so that someone can pen a new Breviary a few years down the line. God ordered No! Clearly able to see scores of years into the future and knew omnisciently that it would remove all doubts if He proclaimed clearly "No NEW Liturgical Rites now FOREVER!"

"Quo Primum" is a huge example.
