The Latest on the Viganò Letter Drama…

Vatican II Church Meltdown – Day 10

Developments & Reactions

This post continues our coverage of the ongoing ecclesiastical Chernobyl unleashed by the accusations of the former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Viganò, which were first published on Aug. 25 and have the potential not only to bring an end to the Francis “pontificate” but even to throw the entire Vatican II Sect into unprecedented chaos:

Monday, Sep. 3, 2018

In first weekday sermon after summer break, Francis casts himself as humble Christ-like victim of vicious slander perpetrated by people who are “lacking good will” and “only seek scandal… division… destruction” — see also this VIDEO REPORT

“Cardinal” Oswald Gracias, the “Archbishop” of Bombay, India, has assured Francis that “the Church in Asia is 100%” on his side

Reactions from Select Blogs and Web Sites

Rod Dreher points out that by defending Francis against Vigano, “Frs.” Thomas Rosica and Federico Lombardi have unwittingly “confirmed his basic narrative”

Novus Ordo Watch issues a word of caution about the Vigano affair and proposes a hypothetical scenario that ought not to be dimissed too lightly: Perhaps the whole thing is a setup orchestrated by Francis… (read on!)

LaCroix‘s Nicolas Senèze says that although “no one denies that there are homosexuals at the Vatican”, nevertheless “Archbishop Viganò has exaggerated their impact”

First Things’ Ian Marcus Corbin says that if “it didn’t involve the back-breaking rape of innocent young people, one could almost enjoy the spectacular totality of the Church’s implosion this summer”

At the National Catholic Register, J.D. Flynn provides an overview of ‘where things stand on nuncio’s allegations’

Good grief it’s time to wake up, Catholic friends. This is just the tip of a very large iceberg. Research a little bit on how Francis attained the papacy...

There's a good recent video on yt by E. Michael Jones with Peter? Helland? I never expected EMJ to take on the pope. A subsequent video seems to mirror the prior video only with Spanish subtitles.

Jones emphasizes that it's more about homosexuality than pedophilia but the latter has occurred and seems worse to me. The media and others don't want it to tarnish homosexuals. So Francis' appeal to let the media decide seems shrewd and deflecting.

I remember Fr. Marcel Maciel accompanied Pope JPII on a trip to Mexico. That pope finally was forced to put Maciel in prayer and penance but it was late in the day.

Very sad and disturbing business. I had hoped the worst was over.
