What is the Vatican's "contribution" behind the scene to Cdl Pell's conviction?
Has anyone here read Henry Sire, 'The Dictator Pope'? I have not read it but a trusted friend, referring to this book, wrote:
"Cardinal Pell was first appointed to the new financial czar role in the Vatican, I think in 2015, his authority was second only to the Pope, he even had authority over the finances of the Secretariat of State, run by Cardinal Parolin. Parolin complained about this and got his own way, Pell's wings were clipped very soon after, and gradually the Pope removed more and more authority from Pell to the extent that it was becoming very difficult for him to do his job. He had uncovered at least a billion Euros that was unaccounted for, as well as informing Pope Bergoglio who among the curia were responsible for the financial scandals. The pope did nothing to address the situation, and the archbishops and cardinals retained their positions, in fact it seems the pope uses their moral corruption and weakness to further his own agenda. Many of these cardinals are part of the lavender mafia, i.e., homos. Pell was seen as a threat. The timing of charges laid on Pell coincides with all these shenanigans in Rome. Apparently there is much relief in Rome now that he is out of the way, especially from a Cardinal B....., and a Cardinal B......... They wanted him gone."
