Socon or Bust was graced with a visit from the Vatican this morning…

Someone from the Vatican dropped by this morning (see below).  I have no idea whether it was a Cardinal or a janitor.  But visits from the Vatican are uncommon.  I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this happened on the eve of the CCCB Plenary.  Our sources tell us that the Vatican is deeply aware and concerned about the Development and Peace issue and they’re monitoring the situation.  Like us, they’re probably eager to see if the CCCB is capable of sorting things out on their own.

In case you’re wondering, the source of the visit is the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (Amministrazione del Patrimonio della Sede Apostolica)

Speaking of Development and Peace, they also dropped by this morning.  I find this highly irregular.  Their office hours are Monday to Friday.  Could it be possible that they’re working overtime this weekend to prepare some last-minute obfuscation material to be presented at the Plenary?  I guess we’ll never know.

Keep praying!

Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

  1. I’m not sure I could handle having your optimism.

    My guess:

    1) The visit from the Vatican was a Canadian priest who, while checking his email, took a peek to see what was going on at SoCon.

    2) It was a visit from ‘Paul the Troll’ while at one of the D&P offices.

    I prefer to take a pessimistic view then I’m never disappointed. The day I’m wrong is the day I get to be pleasantly surprised.

    The good news? Evidence shows the tide is turning. I’m just not sure it will turn very fast in Canada. I’ll stay with the wait and see approach. At least Cardinal Ouellet has the benefit of knowing which bishops spoke out against his pro life comments.
