The Romans have had an interesting response to the leaking of content on the investigative report on Vatileaks. They are scrambling to recover their secret pacts to protect their privacy on corruption and their dirty little secrets.
I can't seem to muster up any empathy. Perhaps there have been just too many victims of it.
I am captivated by the commentary of the ignorance is bliss crowd. It isn't possible they have no evidence that the elephants are in the room. Why carry on with the charade that it is gossip. It is too late for that.
I do not know anyone who really knows whether Cardinal Bertone himself has participated in any of the sick and corrupt practices.
What I can explicitly say is this: Cardinal Bertone is at the top of this sick empire protecting it. He has been terrorizing to protect it through the reigns of Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II.
I can say with conviction that I do not know his motives. It could very well be that he sincerely believes that it is in the best interest of Christ's Church to keep the dirty laundry in the closet. He could be a completely innocent person who believes the scandal would rock the boat so intensly that his efforts to keep it all secret is servitude to Christ.
The magnitude of problems with his reign of terror include the coverups and rapes of children - and worse - millions of Catholics whose souls have been perverted and handed over to the devil.
The remorse and sadness over the rapes of children is cheapened by the unwillingness to change their practices of protecting corruption.
We see it on every level. From the Holy See to each of our parishes.
Cardinal Bertone is not ready or willing to pin the tail on the elephants. I doubt he ever will be.
Frankly, none of us really wants or needs the details. But, I doubt Christ is going to let it keep on consuming souls so I am praying that the Conclave has the spinal fortitude to do what must be done to elect a Pope with the strength to put a rock in the slingshot and fire it.
Otherwise, I think the powers inside of the Vatican who are being tortured, tormented and terrorized by it will take matters into their hands and leak more content.
Everyone has had enough of it. It's going the way of the buffallo. The only question that remains is, how ugly do they want it to get in the public square. It matters not to the victims of the regime who have had enough of it.
Cardinal Pell said it best: The Vatican is no place for a pious fool.
