Vigano testimony violates ‘pontifical secret’

CWN Editor's Note: Father Raymond de Souza points out that whether the testimony of Archbishop Vigano is ultimately confirmed or refuted, “it is indisputable that he spectacularly violated the pontifical secret he swore an oath to keep.” His bold move—and the investigation that it will likely prompt—could endanger the secrecy of Vatican communications.

    I normally like Fr de Souza's writings but here is another smokescreen. He chooses to focus on the irrelevant at this stage and ignore the elephant in the hierarchy room. Some must think or hope the the laity are dumb, deaf, and blind. They can no longer sweep their crimes under the rug and say see nothing here. There will be more good bishops and Cardinals who will demand the truth and push for resignation of the cowards and wrong doers. Jesus protect us.
