The Last Mortal Sin…
Francis in “Do Not Judge!” Frenzy
It was a given that we would experience “Francis Unleashed” once the Novus Ordo readings turn to Matthew 7:1-5, as they did on June 23. This pericope, in which our Blessed Lord preaches against rash (!) judgment, presented Francis with a perfect opportunity to go into a veritable diatribe against what appears to be the only mortal sin recognized by the world today: that of judging (clearly one of Francis’ favorite topics).
Here is an excerpt from a report by the Novus Ordo news service Zenit.org:
At morning Mass in the Casa Santa Marta today, Pope Francis renounced those who judge others, calling them hypocrites and comparing them to Satan.
