SCANDAL - Giovanni Angelo Becciu, 70 years old -- sacked from the Congregation of Causes of Saints and expelled from Cardinalate ("resigned from the rights attached to the Cardinalate “)

 It was January 6, 2014, and in the boiling waters of the "gay lobby crisis" at the beginning of the Francis pontificate, one of his strongmen, Cardinal Angelo Becciu, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, said, "Basta!" (Enough!) -- as we reported at the time (The Vatican "Gay Lobby" - former Swiss Guard chief confirms existence of secret homosexual network in the Vatican - Vatican stonewalls)

Years later, increasing financial scandals involving the name of Becciu came out.


Here we are, almost 7 years later, and an extraordinary edition of the Bollettino of the Holy See comes out with the explosive news: Becciù has "resigned" from his position as prefect, and, more than that, has resigned to "all the rights attached to the Cardinalate."*

It's astonishing, and no explanation has been given so far.

Now, it's our time as faithful to say, "Enough! What's going on???"


Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has been at the forefront of accusations regarding the financial scandals in the Vatican. We await what he has to say.

Oggi, giovedì 24 settembre, il Santo Padre ha accettato la rinuncia dalla carica di Prefetto della Congregazione delle Cause dei Santi e dai diritti connessi al Cardinalato, presentata da Sua Eminenza il Cardinale Giovanni Angelo Becciu.
