    [Catholic Caucus] The St. Gallen Mafia and Orwellian FrancisIn George Orwell’s 1984, no one is supposed to know about anything predating the Revolution that put the now-dominant Party in power. In Orwell’s dystopian prophecy, the records must all be redacted, the memories must all be censored, and the statues must all be renamed to align with the Party’s official account of history. In an eerily similar way, under the current regime of Pope Francis, a dubious history of the 2005 conclave is now being recirculated. With his new interview on the 2005 papal election, Francis is retelling an edited version...

    Bergoglio Uses Bad Knee as Excuse to Duck Out of Commitmentsunusual confession. (Rome) Does Pope Francis have an ideologized knee which dislikes certain journeys? This ironically meant question is being discussed among Vaticanists and bloggers. What is meant by this is whether Francis' knee problems increase before certain trips in order to prevent them.Francis' knee problems worsened when, for example, he was supposed to go to Florence last spring, meaning that he would only have had to travel a relatively short distance within Italy. An exact program was coordinated with the Holy See and organized down to the last detail....

On the second point, the publication of the Vatican balance sheets of 2021, at the beginning of this month of August.The reform of the curia will be evaluated by the consistory Pope Francis has convened...
