Viganò Statement: Francis Grasping for Words

During the flight from Dublin back to Rome, a CBS [Fake] News journalist confronted Pope Francis with the Viganò statement which deeply compromises Francis.

Grasping for words and hiding behind an artificial smile, Francis replied that he had read the statement.

He continued with a barrage of empty words, “I will say sincerely that I must tell you all this — you and all of you who are interested: Read the statement carefully yourselves and make your own judgment. I am not going to say a word about this.”

Francis further announced “when a little time goes by, and you have drawn conclusions, perhaps I will speak about it, but I would like your professional maturity to do this work”. It is to be expected that Francis will never mention the Viganò again.

After his embarrassing reply, Francis will now likely use the second trick from the Vatican playbook: Bergoglio journalists will start slandering Viganò.

Cdls Danneels & Ex-Cdl McCarrick campaigned for Bergoglio to be Pope, as did ++Maradiaga on eve of Conclave, phoning up various cardinals from the Honduran embassy in Rome. Despite their pasts, all 3 prelates have since been special advisors of Francis or rehabilitated by him

@Jim Dorchak According to Teresa Musco Satan's century ended in 2017. To all extents and purposes Satan is continuing to trespass in God's HOUSE - so if I were him - I'd clear off! St Michael's on his way!

Vigano's critics have already launched various attacks on his credibility, Rod Dreher (former Catholic, now "orthodox) takes them on here

@Jungerheld man you are so right. Hahahaha what a wormy thing for him to say. Just sad...
Jungerheld
@Jim Dorchak, he answered, alright. He said, in effect, if you are a professional, do your job and agree with me I have no need to respond because the comments are not credible. The liberal media are on his side also crying out attack! attack!

"Hi - I'm Francis. Good evening Cardinal McCarrick, It doesn't matter WHAT you've done, I'll not defrock you, as long as I can depend on you to further my ambitions, as long as you support ME, and help me to uproot the TRUE Church - I'll say no more about it."

Is THIS what he's been doing?

Anna Matranga, CBS: Good evening, Holy Father. I’ll return to the subject of sex abuse about which you’ve already spoken. This morning, very early, a document by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano’ came out. In it, he says that in 2013 he had a personal talk with you at the Vatican, and that in that talk, he spoke to you explicitly of the behavior of and the sexual abuse by former-Cardinal McCarrick.…More
Anna Matranga, CBS: Good evening, Holy Father. I’ll return to the subject of sex abuse about which you’ve already spoken. This morning, very early, a document by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano’ came out. In it, he says that in 2013 he had a personal talk with you at the Vatican, and that in that talk, he spoke to you explicitly of the behavior of and the sexual abuse by former-Cardinal McCarrick. I wanted to ask you if this was true. I also wanted to ask something else: the Archbishop also said that Pope Benedict sanctioned McCarrick, that he had forbidden him to live in a seminary, to celebrate Mass in public, he couldn’t travel, he was sanctioned by the Church. May I ask you whether these two things are true?

Francis: I will respond to your question, but I would prefer last first we speak about the trip, and then other topics. I was distracted by Stefania, but I will respond. I read the statement this morning, and I must tell you sincerely that, I must say this, to you and all those who are interested. Read the statement carefully and make your own judgment. I will not say a single word about this. I believe the statement speaks for itself. And you have the journalistic capacity to draw your own conclusions. It’s an act of faith. When some time passes and you have drawn your conclusions, I may speak. But, I would like your professional maturity to do the work for you. It will be good for you. That’s good. (inaudible)

Matranga: Marie Collins said that after she met you during the victims gathering, that she spoke with you precisely about ex-Cardinal McCarrick. She said you were very tough in your condemnation of McCarrick. I want to ask you, when was the first time that you heard talk about the abuses committed the former cardinal?

Francis: This is part of the statement about McCarrick. Study it and then I will say. Yesterday, I had not read it but I permitted myself to speak clearly with Marie Collins and the group, it was really an hour-and-a-half, something which made me suffer a lot. But, I believe it was necessary to listen to these 8 people and from this meeting came the proposal. I made it, the others accepted and they helped me to do it, to ask forgiveness today in the Mass. But, in concrete things. The last thing. I had never heard about those mothers, they called it the women’s laundry, when an unmarried woman got pregnant she went to the hospital, I don’t know what the school was called, and the sisters said that and then they gave the child away in adoption to people. There were two sons from that time, they tried to find their mothers, if they were alive. And they would tell them that it was a mortal sin to do this, and to the mothers who called for their children also it was a mortal sin. For this reason, today I finished by saying that this is not a mortal sin but it’s the fourth commandment. And the things that I said today some I didn’t know (before). It was painful for me but I also had the consolation of being able to help clear these things up. I await your comment on the document, I would like that. Thanks.

Journalist: "I want to ask you, when was the first time that you heard talk about the abuses committed the former cardinal?"
Pope Francis: "This is part of the statement about McCarrick. Study it and then I will say."
Not the answer of an innocent.

Regarding another question, toward the end Pope Francis says: "...I also had the consolation of being able to help clarify these things..."

I say: Let your professional maturity help you draw your own conclusions about his words. It will do you good, really.

Clericalism is saying, "I will not answer any questions because I am Pope, and I can hide behind my office for as long as I want to and no-one can touch me."

So those who don’t like Archbishop Viganò’s dossier and what it alleges have coordinated their response, calling it in unison a “hit piece.” You’d think they’d be calling for a full investigation of what’s alleged. That they’re not is revealing.
