VATICAN - Pope: A true pastor, a true prophet, knows how to "speak, do, and listen" [AN]

Beware of “pseudo-Christians” and “pseudo-prophets". "It’s true, they do good things, it is true, but they lack the rock”. They lack “the rock of the love of God, the rock of the Word of God.” And without this rock “they cannot prophesy, they cannot build: they pretend, because in the end everything collapses.” An example of our day is Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who “did not speak, and was able to listen in silence” and “did so much.”
