The Priestly Mafia, Or: The Vatican In The Age Of Mercy

Apologise, picciotto...

1. The first action on the part of this blogger after receiving the letter from Fogler, Rubinoff LLP was to “take it to the Church.” This means that your writer went directly to Rome — to the Vatican on Tuesday, February 17, via email to a direct contact in the Secretariat of State. The request on my part was to intervene “quickly” and this request was not fulfilled. Instead, I was met with an interrogation of my “intentions” which could have been used against me. Later the suggestion was made to humbly accept it as a Lenten sacrifice on Ash Wednesday morning and “apologise” which would have been an admission of guilt for something that did not occur and would have resulted in the silencing and censoring of the blog and a refutation of my rights and duties under Canon 212 §3.

Some say it’s blogger fatigue, but I am not persuaded this arguments works.

It is true that Catholic blogging – if properly made – exposes the blog author to both a mountain of daily bad news and the criticism of the V II – or worse – crowd accusing him of being oh so uncharitable. It is true that not every blogger will find in him the energy or, if you allow me the expression, the grit to go on undeterred. Unavoidably, the one or other will simply stop blogging, or blog much less, and recover that serenity that…
