Failed Financial Reform and Its Next Victim

[Failed Financial Reform and Its Next Victim]

From Gloria.TV News on the 31st of July 2017

Next Victim: The Corriere della Sera writes that Francis is about to fire the president of the Vatican Bank, Jean-Baptiste de Franssu who was named only in July 2014. According to the paper de Franssu feels increasingly marginalized by the Vatican nomenclature and is in Rome only for a couple of days a week.

Failed Reform: The Corriera della Sera also writes that Francis is about to reverse Cardinal Pell’s financial reform and to put the Secretary of State back into power. In other words: The Italian gang with its corruption and intrigues will return. The liberal Corriere della Sera, otherwise a strong supporter of liberal Pope Francis, considers the track record of his economical reform as poor.

  1. Liberal Ideology Jeopardises Vatican’s Financial Reforms

    Pope Francis has aborted the Vatican’s economical reform and is reverting to the former Italian inefficiency. According to formiche [IOR, Pell e de Franssu, tutti i nuovi sommovimenti nella finanza vaticana (IOR, Pell and Francis, all the new revelations in Vatican finance)] this has also ideological reasons as Cardinal Pell, the Vatican reformer who was gradually demoted, was a critic of the controversial Amoris Laetitia.

    Among the strongest adversaries of Pell is pro-gay Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio whose Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts undermined Pell’s reforms. On the other side, Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier of Durban, South Africa, a member of the Vatican Council for the Economy and critic of Amoris Laetitia, supported the reforms.

    The most recent development: Cardinal Domenico Calcagno, the President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Holy See, who fiercely opposed Pell, is investigated in Italy for embezzlement in his former diocese.
