From Roberto de Mattei at Rorate Caeli:


Will Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who brought to light the existence of corruption in the Vatican, singling out those guilty, beginning with the highest ecclesiastical authorities, be punished for telling the truth? Pope Francis is examining this possibility – if it is true, as several sources confirm –  that he has consulted Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmiero, and some other canon-lawyer, to study the possibility of canonical sanctions to inflict on the Archbishop, commencing with sospensione a divinis. If this news is confirmed it would be of extreme gravity, and somewhat surreal, seeing as the “expert” summoned to sanction Monsignor Viganò would be precisely Cardinal Coccopalmiero, who is being accused by the former-Nuncio of the United States, of being part of the “homosexual lobby” lording over the Vatican. It cannot be forgotten in any case, that the Cardinal’s Secretary, Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, is involved in a case of  homosexual orgy, in which the position of his superior has still to be clarified.  
Go here to read the rest.  This not surprising.  The private Pope Francis is completely opposite from the fake image of a merciful and humble Pope.  The private Pope Francis is a man given to bursts of anger, who nurses grudges and who can be remarkably petty against those who cross him.  That this is a foolish move on the part of the Pope might be an indication that his wiser advisors are beginning to keep their distance, fearing to be caught in the whirlwind that will doubtless be created by a Pope who is manifestly in the process of crashing and burning.

Requiescat In Pace: Stan Lee

  1. Rosary completed for this mornings offering for Holy Church. She will survive.
    Her current representative might be singing his Swan song with maneuvers like the one addressed above. Cards seem to be coming down. Birds of a feather?

  2. After reading the “Dictator Pope” my overwhelming thought in the back of my head was my god, we have a mad man in the Chair of Peter. I stifled those thoughts as knee-jerk, irrational type of thoughts. Now my thoughts are my god, we have a mad man in the Chair of Peter. Feeding off of Brian’s comment, any man who has not matured enough to begin to care more of doing God’s Will rather than what the world thinks of him has no business in a leadership role, what alone being a Pope! (heck, what alone being a Parish Priest for that matter)

  3. This internal war will get worse. I predict there will be a turncoat in the Lavender Mafia, one who cares about his immortal soul and will sing like a countertenor in an Italian opera..

  4. Himself could of learned something from the altar boy he razzed; “What’s a matter? Are your hands stuck together?” PF
    He was being reverent.
    (Respecting the office that is.)

    Get that investigation going… Bishop’s!
