Why Libero Milone Resigned As the Auditor General of the Vatican

According to the Francis' mouthpiece FarodiRoma, Libero Milone, the Auditor General of the Vatican resigned not because he was not a competent professional, but because he did not make enough concessions to the court ceremonial of the Vatican, to internal equilibria, and the clerical susceptibility.

Milone acted like a professional and this was the problem. Because he was not afraid of anybody, the resistance group called him "the Executioner".

A long list of Cardinals complains with Francis who eventually gave in. Francis asked Milone to accept a lower pay. Milone was paid tax-free 20'000 Euros a month, which is a normal salary for a manager hired from the free market. At this point Milone decided to quit.
