(Vatican Radio) The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, has responded to a collection of articles published in the Italian weekly L’Espresso. The articles purport to show internal struggles within the Vatican on ongoing economic reforms.

“Passing confidential documents to the press for polemical ends or to foster conflict is not new, but is always to be strongly condemned, and is illegal,” Father Lombardi said. “The fact that complex economic or legal issues are the subject of discussion and diverse points of view should be considered normal. In light of the views expressed, the Pope issues guidelines, and everybody follows them.”

Father Lombardi continued, “The article makes direct personal attacks that should be considered undignified and petty. And it is untrue that the Secretariat for the Economy is not carrying on its work with continuity and efficacy. In confirmation of this, the Secretariat is expected in the next few months to publish the financial statements for 2014 and the estimated budgets for 2015 for all of the entities of the Holy See, including the Secretariat itself.”

Fr. McD. Have you seen where the German Church has "informally" broken away from Rome? Maybe you can do a post on this? I think we all saw this coming

I don't know how else to say this. Fr. Lombardi is terrible at his job. I don't believe a word he or his underlings say. It is becoming Crystal clear that the whole reason Bergoglio called this synod was to normalize sacraligeous behaviour and sodomy. And any bishop who dares to remain faithful to the Church's/Christ's teaching is being crushed.
