"Viganò, Viganò" Shouted From the Crowd at the General Audience Today

A bit more about the crowd shouting 'Viganò, Viganò' at Francis' General Audience yesterday.

(Rome) There was an incident at today's general audience in St. Peter's Square. A group of the faithful called out, "Viganò, Viganò".
The leftist Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano reported the episode and documented the incident with a video. The report was written by journalist Francesco Antonio Grana, a Bergoglian: 

"At the end of the general audience today, Wednesday, a group of faithful joined the chorus, Viganò, Viganò '. A clear tribute to the former Apostolic Nuncio in Washington, Msgr. Carlo Maria Viganò, who recently called for Bergoglio's resignation."
Certain media, notably the New York Times, attempted to downplay the implications of the Viganò memorandum and cast doubt on the credibility of the former top diplomat of the Holy See, speaking of an intrigue of "ultra-conservative" circles against the "good" pope. In the same style an attempt was made to reinterpret the protest of the faithful in St. Peter's Square. The believers called not "Viganò" but "Italo," referring to Bishop Italo Castellani of Lucca in Tuscany, who had attended the general audience with the names of his diocese.
The reality in Rome is so different now that the dossier of the former nuncio in the US has rocked Santa Marta like no other document in the past five years.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
