Mercy exists, but if you don’t want to receive it… If you don’t recognize yourself as a sinner, it means you don’t want to receive it, it means that you don’t feel the need for it. Or maybe you prefer your wounds of sin, and you behave like a dog, licking your wounds. This is a narcissistic illness that makes people bitter. Feeling bitter, an unhealthy pleasure.
– Pope Francis, The Name of God Is Mercy
