Exclusive: Archbishop Vigano answers criticism

June 26, 2020

In answer to questions from CWN editor Phil Lawler, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has issued a provocative new statement clarifying and expanding on his views on the doctrinal and pastoral problems that have arisen since Vatican II, the role of the Council in giving rise to those problems, and the need for “an act of humility that all of us, beginning with the hierarchy and the Pope, must carry out: recognizing the infiltration of the enemy into the heart of the Church.”

    I echo the words of Jim Hanink. It's hard for me to take Archbishop Vigano seriously when he fails to recognize the authority of Vatican II. I also don't like the way he circumvents referring to Pope Francis by his title, referring to him instead as "Bergaglio."I'm not thrilled about many things Pope Francis has done and said, but one should show respect where respect is due. Archbishop Vigano is behaving more and more like an antipope.

    Sadly, this new statement clarifies the Archbishop's commitment to a vast conspiracy. Abuses, yes. Fuzziness, of course. Vast conspiracy? No.
