"Based on my knowledge of the Archbishop — I spent many days with him in 2018, wrote a book about those conversations and have been in regular contact with him ever since, including speaking with him on this matter by phone just yesterday — my judgment is that the archbishop is telling the truth."

Evidently, because the matters that Viganò has been touching on in the past year (the “global reset,” the national lockdowns, the virus, the various vaccinations, all such social and political matters, but also the archbishop’s increasing focus on the beauty and holiness of the old Mass, and his tracing of a certain rejection of traditional Catholic teaching (which might be termed “modernism”) back to the 1960s, and before, rather than seeing it only in the years of this present pontificate) are very disturbing to some — more disturbing than Viganò’s revelations of corruption and coverup in the Roman Curia, which were the main burden of Viganò’s early letters, and which never provoked the suggestion that Viganò had a double.

In other words, as is often popularly said, “When you are over the target, the anti-aircraft fire intensifies.”

Viganó has touched a nerve, and one of his old friends has now placed in the public domain an article which will inevitably leave a trace of doubt, because many will say, “Well, some think there are two Viganò’s…”

In this sense, a certain damage has been done to the archbishop’s reputation and credibility by the public circulation of this allegation.

So again, why?

Part of the answer may lie in the fact that a few weeks ago Dr. De Mattei — as Viganò notes in his response to the accusation below — came out in support of the worldwide use of the presently available emergency injections (called “vaccinations” though they are not vaccines) as a way of stemming the pandemic. (link) De Mattei’s embrace of this position was quite influential for other conservative Catholics (link).

De Mattei contended that such use was moral even if the injected material was in some way derived from the use of aborted fetal tissue, something Archbishop Viganò has repeatedly denounced as immoral.

De Mattei asked: “1) Is it morally licit to use vaccines against COVID-19 that use cellular lines coming from aborted fetuses?” And he answered: “There is… a reply that is more easily accessible for the Catholic with good sense, and this is it: it is licit to be vaccinated [even if the vaccine is derived from the cells of aborted human fetuses] because the Church assures of this, through its most authoritative doctrinal body, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”

It is in that moment that the first “rift” between the position of Dr. De Mattei diverged from the position of Archbishop Viganò."

The textual "change" in Vigano's style is evident. That is it. Maybe a man does change his writing style in old age?

Vigano 'doubles', someone kindly alerted me to this, which supports Vigano's confirmation that he is solely responsible for the writing of his letters. The alleged motivation for de Mattei's attack does ring true. MORE confusion in Tradition!
