VATICAN CONSPIRACY LEAKS ATTRIBUTED TO POWER STRUGGLE, "MONSIGNORS' MUTINY"
by Paddy Agnew
(The Irish Times)
... An outsider could be forgiven for thinking that an unlikely troika of John Le Carré, Dan Brown and David Yallop has been writing current Vatican news reports. In recent weeks, thanks to a series of apparently authentic leaked Holy See documents, we have moved from accusations of graft and corruption within the Vatican city-state to reports of an alleged “murder conspiracy” that would see Pope Benedict XVI dead by November of this year..."
Bridget Mary's Reflection:Intrigue, corruption, scandal in the Vatican is hardly a new story for the Roman Catholic institutional church, yet this is one more argument for a holy shakeup from top to bottom! More than ever, we need a renewed, transparent, and accountable church in which women and men are true equals and partners in ministry, and included as decision markers on all levels including the Vatican.Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP
