Open Revolt in the Vatican?

Open Revolt in the Vatican?

The Vaticanista Marco Tosatti writes that “a cardinal of great renown, a former diplomat, with an important curriculum at the head of Congregations and important offices in the Secretariat of State”, reproached Francis for his reckless undermining of Catholic doctrine.

During a meeting with Francis the cardinal said in essence: “We elected you to make reforms, not to shatter everything.” According to Tosatti, the discussion became known because the two started raising their voices.

The prelate belongs to the cardinals who in 2013 voted for Bergoglio. A scan through the list of the participants in the 2013 conclave shows that the cardinal most likely involved in this incident is Leonardo Sandri, 74, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches.
