Blessed Jacinta Marto of Fatima was ahead of her time.
Whenever she heard someone saying something derogatory or critical of a priest she would hide and cry, and if someone asked her why, she explained that we should never speak ill of a priest of God, but rather we should pray for him.
She spent the rest of her short life performing HEROIC SACRIFICES for the Holy Father, without ever mentioning his name, and it is believed that for her the Pope is the Pope and it matters not which Pope, for she sacrificed and did heroic penance for the Holy Father, regardless of his particular name, especially when he would have the most problems or suffering. She had nothing but compassion for the Holy Father.
We can hardly help but wonder what she would have to say to us today.
But we shouldn't have to wonder, because her words are timeless.
When we consider how much we suffer from those who say they are Catholic priests and reject the Church's teachings, it is difficult to imagine how much more she would suffer.
