Where is the mercy for Asia Bibi?

Gloria TV reports that "Catholic journalist Antonio Socci criticized Pope Francis for his cold reception of the husband and daughter of Asia Bibi. Bibi is a Catholic mother condemned to death in Pakistan for allegedly having insulted Islam. Her husband and daughter were introduced to the Pope in Spanish during a general audience, but Francis quickly passed on. The desperate family had asked for a private audience with the Pope, but was refused. Quote Socci: “Is this the shepherd who wants to smell like the sheep?”

I have blogged previously on Asia Bibi and the seemingly outright refusal of the Pope or the Holy See's bureaucracy to become involved with her.

It is clear in this video that her husband and daughter were simply passed over.

The smell of the sheep, indeed!

Sounds like he prefers the smell of goats.

Disgraceful. But all of piece. God grant Asia Bibi and her family perseverence in this diabolic persecution. True Catholics, particularly those being grossly persecuted for the Faith have been abandoned by the Church, the official authorities of which often collude with the persecutors.
