Seeing Water Flow

World News Australia reports more Vatican leaks, even though the butler is detained. Maybe he’s masterminding the whole thing from his police holding cell.

Who else is named in webs of deceit? Cardinal Bertone. Monsignor Georg Gänswein, the pope’s personal secretary.

Cardinal Burke is mentioned, but not as a leaker. More as a complainer. About those Neo-Cat liturgies. Like that’s his department.

David Gibson suggests this is not so much a leak, but a pour.

I was thinking of the acclamation for the Sprinkling Rite:

I saw water flowing from the right side of the temple, alleluia …

Monsignor Gänswein has been very close to the pope for his whole papacy. People close to B16 are obvious targets. As obvious as planting evidence in the Vatican apartment of a personal assistant. It’s hard not to get the idea that the pope himself is the target of this campaign. I saw one or two rumbles over the weekend that he might make an example of himself and resign. If so, someone has spent a lot of energy and wielded a lot of power to make it happen. Not sure I want those people in charge of the Church.
