"Do we seek the approval of the powers of this world?"
"Or do we let ourselves be taken in by that pride which seeks gratification and recognition?"
- Francis -

Move along, no seeking the approval of the world here!
Recognition, gratification? Nope that's humbleness!
No pride here!
Anti-neopelagian spreading the gospel of Vatican II!
No rosary counters in this crowd!
Humbleness in action!
A bashful & introverted Francis!
A little bit of post-Vatican II continuity!*

Go behind me, Satan, thou art a scandal unto me: because thou savourest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men...For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?
