Default Pope Francis contra clericarism

Pope rebukes legalist people, which is a Pharisaical like behavior. He admonishes shepherds who are concerned about their own interest, not God's nor their sheep. Ezekiel prophesized about them (Ez 34).

Pope Francis talks about the difference between a good shepherd and a bad one:

Quote:
“The shepherd has the ability to go in front of the flock to show the way, stay in the middle of the flock to see what happens within, and also be at the rear of the flock to make sure that no one is left behind,” he said. “Clericalism, on the other hand, demands that the shepherd always stays ahead, sets a course, and punishes with excommunication those who stray from the flock.”
