The Vaticanleak Book is a Hastily Built, Chaotic and Untrammeled Thing
It is to laugh: As the Church-hate media use Bishop Richard Williamson as a pretext to get started on the Pope, he expects backing from the German Judas-Bishops. -kreuz.net
(kreuz.net, Vatican) The book from Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi, armed with books from the 'Vatican Leaks', is a hastily knit messy framework.
This was established by the German news "Welt" yesterday.
Nuzzis' book is entitled "Sua Santita -- Le Carte Segrrete di Benedetto XVI" -- Or, His Holiness -- the Secret Letters of Benedict XVI.
It was published two weeks ago.
"Only civilly married"
Nuzzis' book cites hundreds of secret documents or memos and handwritten notes from the Pope.
The facsimile of thirty confidential letters are in the appendix at the end.
Many of the papers are confidential letters concerned only with Italian affairs -- "a dinner between the Pope and the President of Italy, also the dismissal of the chief editor of 'Avvenire', the newspaper of the Italian bishops' conference," says the newspaper.
At dinner with the ex-Communist and Italian President Giorgio Napolitano they discussed family law, euthanasia, abortion and children.
There is only one note about the Italian president on the Vatican document, "Only married civilly."
Massive Donation Slump
Another letter comes from the emeritus Cardinal Paolo Sardi (76) -- the Pro-Patron of the Order of Malta.
He criticized the poor coordination of the various departments in the Vatican.
A letter of the Papal delegate to the beleaguered congregation of the Legionaries of Christ, Cardinal Velasio De Paolis (76) reported on the massive donation slump of the order and their severe financial situation.
A protest against the Pope insultress
A memo to the German Nuncio, Archbishop Jean-Claude Perisset, asked for "a clear word of protest" directed at the Bundeschancellor Angela Merkel.
This statement refers to her interference in the lifting of the Excommunications against the four Bishops of the Society of St. Pius X in 2009.
The chapter on the German Chancellor contained seven pages.
Benedict XVI noted himself in his report the word "media tsunami".
In Nuzzis' book, there were also conflicts specified between the Old Liberal Mainz Cardinal Karl Lehmann and the Pope.
But there's even more -- at 'Weltbild'
In an interview with the German 'Tageschau' Nuzzi said that onoly some documents in his book come from the Pope himself.
During the media scandal regarding Bishop Richard Williamson the Pope personally criticized to the German Nuncio that the German Judas-Bishops did not defend him. [Remember when Father Schmidberger of the SSPX did just that?]
Nuzzi explained still more that there were still more documents regarding "Weltbild" [The pornography distributor of the German Bishops].
This information could be included in a planned German version of the work.
