Disgraced Becciu receives call from Pope

December 07, 2020

CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu oversaw the internal affairs of the Roman Curia as Substitute (Sostituto) of the Secretariat of State from 2011 to 2018. Pope Francis created him a cardinal in the 2018 consistory and named him Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. In September, Becciu resigned from the “rights connected to the cardinalate.” He described the November 29 phone call as “comforting” and “a ray of light.”

    The Pope is so merciful. Does anyone know how many times he called Cardinal Pell when he was in prison? He never did call any of the 4 "dubia" cardinals either. Hmm. Makes one wonder.
