Ganswein filters information to Benedict, Archbishop Vigano charges
January 16, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has charged that Archbishop George Gänswein has exploited his position as secretary to Pope-emeritus Benedict, selectively controlling access to the retired Pontiff. Archbishop Vigano contends that even before Pope Benedict resigned, Gänswein “habitually filtered information, arrogating to himself the right to judge how opportune or not it was to send it to the Holy Father.” Archbishop Vigano made these charges after Archbishop Gänswein said that Benedict had not fully agreed to be listed as co-author of a new book defending clerical celibacy.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
