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.
