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.
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.
