A Former High-Ranking Member of the Roman Curia Criticizes Pope Francis for his Vanity and Populism 
By Maike Hicksonposted at www.cfnews.org
In the German-speaking countries of Europe (including Austria and Switzerland), an anonymous letter by a former Curial Member has been widely reported on, among others by the website of the Swiss Bishops, kath.ch, and by a prominent conservative Austrian website, Kath.net. The well-known German magazine FOCUS 
published on November 27  an anonymous open letter to Pope Francis, written with earnestness by a former member of the Roman Curia who rebukes the pontiff for his deficient leadership and character flaws.

As these criticisms become more and more public, they can provide fiber to others who have been too timid or blind to rebuke this pope. This letter goes right for the throat, calling out Francis' phony humility with cameras rolling and his "emotional and anti-intellectual attitude which has difficulties in dealing with theories and doctrines.” Ooh, with criticisms like that, it may be the embarrassed SJ themselves who puts the kibosh on Francis.
