Subterfuge at the Vatican?

Dear Editor, It seems a secret dossier is being circulated in the Vatican by clerics opposed to Pope Francis’s recent decision to “liberalise” the process of marriage annulments.

While Pope Francis goes out to the whole world proclaiming the Gospel, some at home in Rome are plotting against him. Better to be a missionary of mercy, as the Pope is in Cuba, than a monsignor of meanness at the Papal Court.

Their behaviour shows up the twin evils of clericalism and gossip, topics our Holy Father has referred to quite often.

Yours etc.,
