From the Eponymous Flower
(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.
