One Peter Five has published parts of a letter issued by Pope Francis to Cardinal Burke, asserting that "manifestations of a worldly spirit..must be prevented from being introduced into the order, including affiliations and associations, movements and organizations". It would seem that Cardinal Burke, with the assistance of Fra Matthew Festing, was doing precisely that when they ousted Albrecht von Boeselager, who allowed Maltaser to distribute condoms.
But as we've seen, Festing was coerced into retiring and Cardinal Burke has been further marginalized by the appointment of Archbishop Becciu as "Special Delegate to the Knights of Malta". Boeselager has been reinstated as Grand Chancellor. Dare we speculate that he is free to resume his distribution of condoms vis-a-vis Maltaser? But the article quoted by 1P5 highlights another detail, one that might otherwise have escaped notice. The pope nullified all actions taken by Festing, going back to December 6. One of those actions was the establishment of a commission to investigate a strange inheritance received by the Knights of Malta: 120 million (currency denomination not stated) into a Swiss bank account. There is some speculation that it came from Boeselager himself; now that question is far from being investigated, let alone answered. Do recall that Albrecht's brother, Georg Von Boeselager, was appointed as a director of the Vatican Bank during this time. Ladies and gentlemen, this is NOT a coincidence!
The Lepanto Institute published a bit of history of the Knights of Malta, focusing on their centuries-old contentions with Freemasonry. I agree that there is much more to this situation than meets the eye.
