"It would be simple to Eliminate the Corruption" just "Eliminate" the "Old Guard," Parolin & Francis?

"[V]eteran Vatican watcher John Allen said in a report... that Parolin had discussed his concerns about the audit with Pope Francis and Francis had probably approved the [Secretariat of State employee] Becciu letter [that cancelled the Pell audit]." - Inside the Vatican 

The Catholic Monitor wrote the following on which appeared to show that the corrupt Cardinal Angelo Becciu was a pawn of Cardinal Pietro Parolin and ultimately of Francis:

Vatican expert Edward Pentin reported "nearly three years later questions raised by Cardinal [George] Pell... have seemingly gone unanswered. Pell had identified money laundering and fraud risks."

The Vatican expert revealed in "2017, the first ever external audit [of Pell] of the Vatican's Price Waterhouse (PwC) was abruptly cancelled by the Secretariat of State [headed by Cardinal Pietro Parolin] just months after it started."

According to Pentin, a informed Vatican source said:

"It would be so simple to eliminate the corruption: change the people... the same corrupt people as before, the so-called 'old guard.'"

National Catholic Register, "Questions Persist About Vatican Finances, Real Estate," July 22, 2019)

Pentin in the article didn't mention who is the defacto leader of the "old guard." He is:

Francis's Secretary of State Cardinal Parolin.

At the time of the financial examination being cancelled, the Inside the Vatican magazine reported who was behind the cancellation of the Pell audit (which was an attempt to begin a process of rooting out the Vatican financial corruption):

"[V]eteran Vatican watcher John Allen said in a report... that Parolin had discussed his concerns about the audit with Pope Francis and Francis had probably approved the [Secretariat of State employee] Becciu letter [that cancelled the Pell audit]."

Moreover, the magazine in the article called "Power Struggle in Vatican City" revealed :

"[T]he Secretariat of State [headed by Parolin] unceremoniously 'pulled the plug' on the initiative [Pell audit]."

""This dramatic move was taken without the knowledge of Pell, behind Pell's back."

"But Pell had been under attack in the Curia for some time..."

"This winter, Pell was was under attack from another direction. He was interrogated... by an Australian government commission... [on] decades ago... cases of priests sexually abusing young people in Australia."
(Inside the Vatican online edition, "Power Struggle in Vatican City," no date given) 

Is Pentin right? Are the "old guard" and Parolin behind all the Vatican corruption?  Or might it ultimately rest on Francis' shoulders?

The evidence appears to show that Sodano's Old Guard didn't appreciate being sidelined by Pope Benedict and they as well as the Gay Lobby initiated Vatileaks and other unsavory maneuvers to get the pope to resign. The Old Guard in my opinion have pretty much controlled Francis until recently, but it looks like he recently thinks he has enough power to take them on.

Even before the sacking of  Sodano, his Old Guard recently apparently has been systematically defeated by Francis and the Vatican Gay Lobby.

The Old Guard Vatican diplomats whose top official is Sercetary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin was "attack[ed]" and "is being targeted" by the Vatican Bank (IOR) which is headed by the Francis appointed Gay Lobby Monsignor Battista Ricca according to Italian news outlet Ilmerraggero.
(Ilmessaggero.it, "Vatican, IOR attacks the Secretariat of State: alleged financial irregularities," October 2, 2019)

The Ilmessaggero article reported Parolin's Secretariat of State offices were broken into by Vatican police with the apparent approval of Francis:

"[I]n the offices of the Secretariat of State... the Vatican judicial police officers broke in for a reconnaissance that led to the seizure of documents and computers."

Gloria.tv revealed:

"The Italian daily Ilmessaggero.it has presented the Vatican's recent financial scandal as a 'clash of power' between the Vatican Bank and the Secretary of State."
(Gloria.tv, "Vatican Scandal: Now the Accused Speaks," October 6, 2019)

Moreover, Gloria.tv reported the Francis Vatican raid was a sneak attack:

"Secretary of State Piero Parolin, was unaware of the problems leading to the suspension of five high-placed collaborators in his own dicastery."

"According to Corriere.it (October 3), Parolin was informed by Francis only a few hours before the raid in the Secretariat of State took place."
(Gloria.tv, "No Dialogue: Parolin Informed in Last Minute," October 4, 2019)

Furthermore, Vatican expert Andrea Gagliarducci says the Francis Gay Lobby takeover of Parolin's Old Guard Secretary of State is long planned including putting Gay Lobby Archbishop Edgar Pena Parra as the second in command behind Parolin at the Secretariat.

Parra is deeply connected to Francis's closest collaborator pro-gay Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga and his alleged gay predator ex-auxiliary Bishop Juan Jose Pineda who was forced to resign.

In August, Gagliarducci reported the Francis Gay Lobby takeover of the Old Guard's last strong hold at the Vatican:

"Pope Francis is setting up his team in the Secretariat of State. This new team will have no connection with the old guard."
(Mondayvatican.com, "Pope Francis, how the transition is taking place," August 5, 2019)

Moreover, Gagliarducci says the  "attack" on the Old Guard is "unprecedented" in the history of the Vatican:

"[W]hy should an entity under the oversight, namely the Institute for Religious Works [the Vatican Bank], report on other bodies that oversee it... the Secretariat of State?"

"... Possible answer is that the green light came directly by the Pope to the prosecutor..."

"The attack to the Institution from within the Institution is unprecedented for the Holy See. It shows the extent of the internal struggle."
(Mondayvatican.com, "Pope Francis, what is happening in the Vatican?," October 7, 2019)

It appears that Francis and the Gay Lobby are victorious over Sodano's Old Guard and Parolin.
 
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
