There are Internet reports that the Vatican's Secret Security Service has been given, as its most highly prioritised current operation, orders to hunt down H E Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano.
Such reports give us quite a new insight into daily life in the City of Saints.
"Il nome e Bond ... ... Giacomo Bond ..."
But perhaps Archbishop Vigano is not in great danger. When those rather naughty posters were stuck up all round central Rome attacking PF, we were told that Security would soon discover and punish the culprits ... but no very extreme measures seem to have been taken ...
... or perhaps the Holy See is running low in its stocks of Novichoc ...
I take this opportunity to make it absolutely clear that there is absolutely no truth whatsoever in any rumour that Mgr Vigano is under the protection of the Ordinariates; or in any report that he is being moved from Safe House to Safe House within those Ordinariates, always just one step ahead of 'Smersh' Parolin's hit squads.
And, as far as I know, it is simply not true that Vigano has secured a Reader's Pass to the Bodleian Library and habitually sits at the third desk on the left as you enter the Patristics Room. Nor do I consider it at all likely that the Crown will nominate him to a Regius Professorship in Ecclesiastical History.
One should not believe everything one hears.
