The Vatican is in the midst of a scandal once again this week. Two new books are the cause of the controversy. Apparently, the books claim that the Vatican is divided, one side standing with the Pope and his efforts to reform, the other, getting in his way. They claim there is mismanagement of funding, lavish spending, greed and fraud inside the Vatican and there is nothing Pope Francis can do to stop it since he is locked out without a key. Literally, the Pope cannot get inside the Vatican. He left his keys in Philadelphia.
In September, The Holy Bishop of Rome visited the U.S. and, for whatever reason, spent most of his time in Philadelphia. Well, turns out while visiting the City of Brotherly Love, His Holiness lost the keys to the Vatican.
When the Pope returned to Rome and checked his robe for the keys they were gone. Whether they were stolen during his visit to Lincoln Financial Field or simply misplace in one of the hundreds of Wawa’s, they’re gone and the Pope sure as hell isn’t going back to get them.
So now, in November, corruption is ripping the Vatican apart (as usual) (I typed that with a smug look on my face) and unless he is willing to go back to Philadelphia, there is nothing the Papa can do about it.
