What is on the piece of paper written by Pope Francis handed to the Secretary of the Synod, Cardinal Baldisseri in the Synod Hall?
(Rome) – The Pope, who participates in the General Congregations, but doesn’t speak, reaches again and again for a fountain pen and writes something on scraps of paper, which he then can deliver to Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri. “This is not a possible wish, but I would not pay just a little to know what is written on the piece of paper which Pope Francis wrote and sent to the Secretary General of the Synod,” said the Vatican expert Marco Tosatti.
Pope Francis Giving Directions on How the Synod is to Run?
The cardinal read the slips of paper supplied, wrote something under it and sent it back to the Pope, who stuck it in his pocket. So Tosatti describes the flow of messages list, the number of times since the beginning of the Synod repeated every day. The exchange could not be hidden from the attentive synod participants. Especially not during the remarks given by Cardinal Burke and Müller, as an attack on marriage teaching of the Church was in the air.
The series of messages convey the impression that the Pope is giving instructions to the Synod Secretary. Who, when the instructions can or should address? It is known that Pope Francis has placed people loyal to him at all strategic positions of the Bishops’ Synod. This includes Cardinal Baldisseri as Archbishop Forte to name just two.
