Archbishop Becciu Is Among New Cardinals

Last Sunday, Pope Francis announced the creation of 14 new cardinals on June 29. One of the chosen is Archbishop Giovanni Becciu, the second man in the Vatican Secretariat of State.

Becciu Is an Italian who belongs to the Focolare movement.

In the past, Becciu has been used by Francis and others to bring people "into line" in a way in which politics are more important than truth and justice.

Not surprisingly Becciu told vaticannews.va (May 20) that he will be a Cardinal of “total loyalty” to Francis [he didn't mention Christ].

The fact that Becciu will become a Cardinal may also be a promotion in order to remove him because in his present position he has been in conflict with his boss, Cardinal Pietro Parolin.

Now, Becciu may be moved to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints or [Cardinal Pell’s] powerless Secretariat for the Economy.

Dictator Pope, "I am hearing more from people I trust in Rome about the newly named cardinals, and that, well, it could be worse. Some speak highly of the Pole, Krajewski, and that the really bad eggs are few. That's not to say this consistory is good news."

The irony is that Francis, who has made moves to minimize Italian influence in the Vatican, has given two Italians the most power.

When are the cardinals Burke, Sarah, Brandmüller etc. etc. finally going to do something about this disaster? It is five to twelve now. On June 29 it may be too late.
