La Repubblica disapproves of the nomination of Ladarias as a Prefect of Doctrine and the Faith
In his home country of Spain, Luis Ladaria SJ enjoys the good reputation of orthodoxy. Apart from the unusual circumstances of his appointment, the latter was largely positive. The pope's decision obviously followed tactical considerations, in order for the dismissal of Cardinal Miiller not to result in a revolt. Francis did not impress La Repubblica , the flagship of Italian left-wing journalism. The only newspaper he reads every day, according to his own statements, contained a "message" to the head of the Church on Monday: a disapproval of the appointment of Ladarias.
For La Repubblica, the new Prefect is "too conservative" in any case. There is also a fundamental aversion to the institution which was the former Holy Inquisition. La repubblica, of course, does not write this. It attacks with the dirt bucket and goes to the "tried and tested" way of denunciation. "Pedophilia: a shadow on Bishop Ladaria," is the headline, and the same on the title page. To this end, the archive photo of a rally in front of St Peter's was reprinted against sexual abuse by clerics. The is a banner with an inscription "Church without abuse." The actual article can be found on page 15. The title reads: "He did not expose the pedophile priest. The Shadow on the Chief of the Holy Office."
The case of ex-priest Gianni Trotta
One of the two authors is the expose journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi, who was brought to justice in connection with the Vatican's Vatileaks 2 scandal. He was accused of having published confidential documents from the Vatican in his book "Avarizia" (avarice), published in late 2015. As the court was not able to prove any criminal offense, he was released a year ago, while the Vatican employees who had supplied him and another journalist with the documents, the Spanish Prelate Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda, and the busybody PR wife, Francesca Chaouqui.
The Catalan daily newspaper La Vanguardia took up the Repubblica article and titled it: "New crisis in the Vatican: Ladaria, recent appointment of the Pope, covered a case of pederasty. Shadow over the new Prefect of the Congregation of the Faith." This is about the case of an Italian priest named Gianni Trotta, who was removed in 2012 by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from the clerical state. Trotta then became a soccer coach and abused minor children. In spring 2015 he was arrested and sentenced to eight years imprisonment by an Italian criminal court. The case had been reported in great detail by Repubblica and L'Espresso, the weekly magazine, last February.
The Congregation conducted the trial of the 49-year-old Trotta in 2009, which ended with the maximum sentence, the laicization. Repubblica criticizes the fact that Trotta was condemned by the Vatican but that the judgment was not publicly disclosed. In this way the people had not been warned in some small places in Puglia. In addition, Trotta, who was active as a coach of children's teams, continued to work as a priest, to gain people's confidence.
The crime of abuse relevant to criminal law were all committed after he had been laicized. This applies to the abuse of an eleven-year-old boy, for which he was sentenced to eight years in the first instance. This also applies to other cases of abuse involving the production and distribution of child pornography, for which he will soon be responsible. Repubblica criticizes the fact that they might have been prevented if the Vatican had made the case public. The daily newspaper even goes so far as to blame Ladaria for having "covered up" a case of pedophilia. The concept of cover-up is overshadowed here because Ladaria was not involved in the cover-up, but in the condemnation of Trotta.
Politics of the Scorched Earth at La Repubblica
The decree of laicization from 2012 was signed by Cardinal Levada. Then Cardinal Levada, and Ladaria, was then secretary of the Congregation. Repubblica , however, makes a cover-up of the conviction. According to Repubblica, the Congregation of the Faith would have had to publicly denounce Trotta. A doubtful demand to the Church, in which a maxim is to be hard against sin, but mild to the sinner. Repubblica's fretting, therefore, is probably more about something else.
The new Prefect, Luis Ladaria Ferrer, is virtually unknown to the general public, including most Catholics. The Repubblica article guarantees that his name is immediately placed in a negative context. "The Prefect did not bring the pedophile ex-priest to the public,"... "cover-up of a pedophile scandal" are the headlines spread over media and social networks. It's an imagery that can hardly be bettered. What is the purpose of La Repubblica with the immediate tally-ho on the newly named Prefect?
When Pope Francis was elected, Eugenio Scalfari, the founder and father of La Repubblica, was his preferred partner. The result was several interviews and editorials of doubtful content. In the meantime, it has become quieter because the confessed atheist from a family with an old Masonic tradition, whom Pope Francis "does not want to convert", is already in his 94th year.
The fact is that this is the message that La Repubblica has noted with satisfaction the dismissal of Cardinal Müller and has declared the hunt for his successor.

Happy Thursday everyone! And I do mean happy, because there's another HUGE scandal in the Vatican of Pope Francis that may bring him down....because it involves a Cardinal who is a member of Francis' inner circle of liberal perverts...and the Cardinal's own secretary. Below is a paragraph from an article on the web. It's an earthquake in the Vatican.
"Vatican police broke up a homosexual orgy last month in an apartment belonging to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith — the department charged with, among other things, tackling clerical sexual abuse.
The occupant of the apartment is alleged to be the secretary of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative texts, and a key adviser to the Pope."
Coco is a radical liberal, who said that divorced people in a sexual relationship with others does not forbid them from receiving Holy Communion and the Sacraments...in other words, they're ok. Not surprising, because Coco had proposed that this sicko pervert secretary of his be elevated to the rank of a bishop!! And I don't believe (any anyone with a functioning brain), would believe that Coco knew nothing of his secretary's behavior or sexual inclinations. He knew everything.
According to what I read, this secretary's career is ruined, Coco's career is ruined (he's going to be 80 in March, so a.h. Francis had let him stay on way past retirement age.), and also I read that this new scandal could ruin and bring down Francis. It reveals the filth of his Vatican.
Let's all pray for an end of this pontificate, and a true housecleaning of the filth that even Benedict XVI spoke of afew weeks before he was elected Pope.
He was elected to clean house, and the wolves like Coco and other frightened him off. Let's hope a new traditional Pope will have the strength to get the job done.
I want to wait till it comes out from someone else besides the Mason, Zagami, but according to him, Cardinal Müller is the one who called in the cops.
Good for Muller!
Zagami may be a Mason, and a nutjob( I saw him on Youtube posts), but he's anti-Vatican II, and much of what he says turns out (not all) to be true.
I saw posts from British, Irish, and USA sources (NYT, NY Post, USA Today, etc). so it can't be fake.
Francis should quit.
He thinks he's descended from royalty, the line of Mary Magdalen....
Mary Magdalen royalty? That's news to me :)
Sounds like he's delusional. But his reports are often not.
mythology that all of the royalty of Europe is descended from Jesus and Mary Magdalen.
As in Jesus and Mary Magdalen being married...husband and wife? That's really freaky, just like some people still claiming that the pyramids were built by aliens 15,000 years ago, not the tested and authenticated 5,500 years ago.
That's why I don't trust Zagami.
That's the blasphemous premise of two books and movies which I won't name so as not to give them any more free publicity or cause you any more scandal.
It's all coming apart.
But it's not and that's the problem. This scandal has barely caused a ripple in wider catholic circles, have we seen any cardinals or bishops stepping forward to criticise? The dream of a Francis papacy implosion is that, a dream.
