As we noted last week, Sandro Magister publicly stated L'Espresso has evidence proving their story on Msgr. Ricca, and his involvement in the "Gay Lobby."
Fr. Federico Lombardi, Holy See spokesman, at the time called the accusation "untrustworthy" (non attendibile). Journalist Matteo Matzuzzi later noted that Lombardi also said "the Pope has had the chance to verify whether the accusations against Msgr. Ricca were consistent or not," and that "Pope Francis is aware of the accusations made against Msgr. Ricca but has decided to keep him in his position."
I.MEDIA is now reporting that Ricca offered his resignation to Pope Francis on Saturday.
Looks like the ball is back in Lombardi's court. We await word from Rio.
