What is the background behind the reported firing of the Vatican police chief Domenico Giani by Francis? If it is true, it appears to be part of a war between Francis's Vatican Gay Lobby against the Vatican Old Guard diplomats whose main figure head is Cardinal Pietro Parolin, but whose real head is Cardinal Angelo Sodano. The evidence I have found points to Giani being allied with Sodano's Old Guard. If this is true, it is a war between two equally unsavory outfits who in my opinion are both responsible for the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, the Church financial scandals and the sex abuse scandals. I pray for their expulsions from the Church which will hopefully lead to their conversion before their death. Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
