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!

Sounds like all these guys would make a great task force to deal with the LCWR and the Irish Church.

I pray for our Pope (always) but I am not so sure the "scandal" is a bad thing. The Church is attacked from within and without, we know this becasue our Lady of Fatima told us it would be so unless we took the specific steps to combat it. This "scandal" may actually motivate the Pope to open his eyes and see that his "friends" are not all deserving of the label.

Templar,
If you read the "Chiesa" story and if you have ever read a recent copy of Fr. Gruner's "The Fatima Messenger," (which strongly advocates for the prescribed specific consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart by the Pope and all the Bishops) you will keep seeing the name of the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, popping up as a perceived large part of the problem.

His office is also implicated in another story in "Chiesa" wherein it trys to upstage, or obstruct, Cong. for Divine Worships' efforts to promote the use of more Gregorian Chant.

Templar,
I stand corrected--Fr. Gruner's magazine is called "The Fatima Crusader" rather than "The Fatima Messenger."
