Why Does Pope Francis Fail To Mention The Wolf? Francis Only Makes Mention Of The Hireling & Good Shepherd
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep. But the hireling, and he that is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flieth: and the wolf catcheth, and scattereth the sheep: And the hireling flieth, because he is a hireling: and he hath no care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know mine, and mine know me. As the Father knoweth me, and I know the Father: and I lay down my life for my sheep. JnGood Shepherd.
All mentioned in the above.
But Francis fails to mention the wolf....
Our Lord brought about His Kingdom through His closeness and tenderness, as the Shepherd of His flock. Pastors in the Church, the Pope said, cannot stray from Christ’s example if they do not want to become “hirelings.” “The People of God have an unerring sense for recognizing good shepherds and distinguishing them from hirelings.” Pope Francis
Why no mention of the wolf?
I am not afraid of the Hireling - because he runs and disappears. I don't like the hireling too much because he leaves us to be prey for the wolf.
Who is the Good Shepherd?

Who is the Hireling?
Who is the Wolf?
