Editor’s Note: Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has granted another wide-ranging interview, this time, to Radio Spada. In it, he quickly moves from the corruption in the Vatican to the doctrinal corruption he identifies as originating at the Second Vatican Council. He speaks at greater length about his conclusions concerning Pope Benedict XVI’s attempt to reconcile the Council with Tradition, and reaffirms with further details his conclusion that this attempt has failed.
The English translation of the interview and accompanying notes (those which appear in square brackets) are by Dr. Robert Moynihan and were first published by Inside the Vatican here. The interview itself, conducted in Italian, was originally published by Radio Spada here. Catholic Family News is grateful to Archbishop Viganò for sending us a copy of this new interview for posting on our website.
INTERVIEW BY ARCHBISHOP CARLO MARIA VIGANÒ TO RADIO SPADA
Radio Spada: Good morning, Your Excellency, we thank you for the dialogue we will have. Let’s begin with Galleria neovaticana [the book title may be translated as “The Neo-Vatican Gallery”], a new book by Marco Tosatti for which you wrote the Preface. Allow us to tell you an anecdote: only a few hours after the news that the book was going to press, a Twitter post appeared, based only on the book’s cover and title, obviously, asking how much in keeping with the Gospel it was to print a volume dedicated to scabrous accusations and facts that are not always edifying. What would you answer to this objection?
