On Saturday, the Church and even the entire world were witnesses to the skulduggery of the Vatican Communications Office. Today it was announced that Msgr Vigano, Prefect of the Vatican Secretariat for Communications resigned. Apparently he is taking responsibility for the "lettergate" fiasco - their attempt at deception that blew up in their faces after the Pope Emeritus refused to be their dupe.
So now we know that Pope Francis is entirely innocent of the whole debacle for he accepted the resignation and rid the Vatican of that dastardly perpetrator - right? Ehhh...not quite! It seems that in his same letter in which he accepted Vigano's resignation from his prior position, Pope Francis created a new position in the same office, an "assessore" of the same office he held. It's akin to "second in command". That is Vigano's new role. A devious mind might think that Vigano's still going to call the shots around there, with the new prefect serving as a "front-man" puppet. But of course that would be the furthest thing from the minds of the Vaticanistas now, wouldn't it? (Stop that snickering immediately, you cynical neo-pelagians!)
As the saying goes, "personnel is policy". Once again we are left with no doubt regarding their policies. Please pray for the Church and continue to shine the light on the cockroaches.
“What can I do to help resolve the crisis in the Church?” “Pray and act.” By action, make known your dissatisfaction to the American bishops, to the Holy See, and to your fellow Catholics. Prayer is all-powerful. God wants us to pray to Him for the graces we need to remedy the evils we find in the Church today. Our prayers remind us that we are totally dependent upon God, and that God wants us to exercise our love for Him in the sweet duty of seeking His help. We must also act to stir the shepherds of the Church to recognize the serious problems we face and to do whatever is necessary to resolve these problems.
