He didn't mince words
Very appropriate and necessary choice of words by Pope Francis: "they are the work of the devil." One thing is to be persecuted for speaking truth to power, but when the intent is to deceive the millions of Catholics that EWTN reaches, this warning is now mandatory and the many people responsible for the attacks deserve the label "brood of vipers."
Having exercised extraordinary restraint and patience, it seems clear that His Holiness has decided to challenge his detractors. In a classic display of an aggressor ‘claiming victimhood’ once detected, the perpetrators are now seeking sympathy. The ‘haters’ are proving they have glass jaws. If you are gonna dish it out, you gotta be able to take it. Seems the critics of Francis can’t take it.
How do you know that your pope is talking about EWTN, Mike?
