However, Pope Francis continued, having the
pledge of Heaven itself for eternity does not stop Christians from
slipping on at least a few temptations. First, he notes, "when we want
to, not necessarily cancel out this identity, but dull it down”:
"This is the lukewarm Christian. It is a
Christian who, yes, goes to Mass on Sundays, but whose identity is not
visible in his way of life. He may even live like a pagan, but he is a
Christian. Being lukewarm. Dulling down our identity. And the other
sin, of which Jesus spoke to his disciples, and which we heard:
of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.' 'Pretending': I
pretend to be a Christian, but am not. I am not transparent, I say one
thing - 'yes, yes I am a Christian' - but I do another, something that
is not Christian"
My comment: Cardinal Mueller and the vast majority of bishops who stood up yesterday and demanded transparency at the Synod and got what they demanded as a slap in the face to Cardinal Baldiserri and those who manipulated Monday's Relatio, proves that these orthodox cardinals and archbishops like Pell, Dolan and Burke are not the Pharisees! The ones manipulating the synod and trying to keep things secret are! Who is the pope siding with here?????? Those who manipulated the first text released on Monday demanding secrecy did something that is not Christian! They are the Pharisees!
