WE SHOULD NOT UNDERESTIMATE HOW SERIOUS THE SCANDAL AT THE VATICAN IS FOR POPE BENEDICT XVI, OUR HOLY FATHER NEEDS OUR PRAYERS AS DOES THE CHURCH UNIVERSAL
PRESS HERE FOR: "THE HUNT FOR THE THIEVES IN THE VATICAN," BY SANDRO MAGISTER FROM HIS POPULAR BLOG "CHIESA."
"The real or presumed thieves of Vatican papers have declared in chorus to the newspapers, under anonymity, that they acted precisely out of love for the pope, to help him clean house. And it is true that none of the wrongdoing laid bare in the documents involves his person. But it is even more true that everything falls upon him, inexorably.
The pope theologian of the great homilies, of the book on Jesus, is the same one who reigns over a curia adrift, a den of "egoism, violence, enmity, discord, jealousy," all of the vices he stigmatized in last Sunday's homily for Pentecost and in so much more of his fruitless prior preaching."
This is serious stuff and damages the papacy and the Vatican in very serious ways. Pray for the Pope and the Church!
