Pope Francis in Santa Marta warns against murmurs, the ones that are our daily bread in our society, in the families, parishes and in politics
How often is there murmuring in our life? How often is there murmuring in society, in the dioceses (in this case in the parishes), in the family and even in politics. Especially in politics, because when a government is not honest it seeks to dirty its opponents with murmuring. Whether it be defamation, slander, it is always looking for something [to criticize]..., Francis affirms in the mass in Santa Marta today. Murmuring is our daily bread, at the level of persons, of the family, the parish, the diocese, the social level, is the denunciation contained in the Popes homily reported, as always, by Vatican News.
Bergoglio points the finger in particular at the Infra-diocesan conflicts, the internal conflict within the diocese, those that disfigure the face of the Church. And he observes how ugly it is that the same dynamics reproduce themselves, on a larger scale, in politics through accusations, slander, defamation. Thats what dictatorial governments do. What makes a dictatorial government? Taking control first of the means of communication with a law, and from there, it begins to murmur, to belittle everyone that is a danger to the government.
Murmuring is the other side the negative one- of bearing witness. Todays Gospel, taken from Luke, proposes both these situations: the witness of Jesus eating with sinners and publicans and the murmuring of scribes and Pharisees for this gesture.
The witness of Jesus is a new thing for that time, Pope Francis stresses, because going to sinners made you unclean, like touching a leper. For this reason, the doctors of the law kept away from them.

He's gaslighting us again.
Murmur, murmur, murmur.
Another lecture from the obese rainbow marxist?
Does anyone listen anymore?
The False Pope once again is incapable about speaking to faith. He will not shut up about politics.
I feel bad for Catholics who have to endure a socialist fool
“Bergoglio points the finger..... “
I only wonder what boyfriend it was in before he started pointing it.
I am a Catholic and I feel bad for non-Catholics and Catholics alike who have to endure a socialist government...ours.
Dont feel bad, we stopped giving the church money.
It’s evil to feed a propogandist that wants to enslave people with the Marxist yoke.
Thank God for the Reformation
After reading the article, The unstated message I get from the pope is that packing the church with gay priests who like to fondle boys is a wonderful thing. And if anyone dares to criticizes this message, they’re a homophobe and Jesus will not be happy about it.
Sometimes you have to read between the lines.
Hey Frankie, shut the f**k up, huh?
And don’t dishonest Churches do the same thing?
