Pope Francis Reads Saint Louis Catholic

Well, possibly.

OK, not bloody likely.

But... but... His Holiness did say something today to a meeting of the Superiors General of religious orders in Rome that captured a thought I was trying to express in this recent post, one that cuts to the quick:

“The men and women of the Church who are careerists and social climbers, who 'use' people, the Church, their brothers and sisters—whom they should be serving—as a springboard for their own personal interests and ambitions … are doing great harm to the Church.”

This whole address is well worth reading, and has great ecclesial insight. The article is at the Vatican Information Service, h/t to Rorate Caeli.
