Hypocrisy – is the new Pope doing something to combat it?

You might agree with me that hypocrisy ranks with cynicism and exclusivism as poison in relation to the life spiritual.

I was therefore pleasantly surprised to see this from the new Pope;

"In our ecclesiastical region there are priests who don’t baptize the children of single mothers because they weren’t conceived in the sanctity of marriage. These are today’s hypocrites. Those who clericalise the church. Those who separate the people of God from salvation. And this poor girl who, rather than returning the child to sender, had the courage to carry it into the world, must wander from parish to parish so that it’s baptised!"
