Dorothy Cummings McLeanROME, September 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― A veteran Vatican journalist has revealed that a Vatican whistleblower told him that Pope Francis is ‘provoking’ a schism in the Catholic Church.

Dr. Robert Moynihan, founder and editor-in-chief of Inside the Vatican magazine, recently published remarks he says Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò made to him in response to Pope Francis’ recent reflections on schism.

On his September 10 flight to Rome from a five-day trip to Madagascar and Mozambique, the Argentinian pontiff told reporters that he was “not afraid of schisms” and that a schism “is always an elitist separation stemming from an ideology detached from doctrine.”

“Pope Francis is saying that because he knows the Amazon Synod may provoke a schism,” Viganò allegedly told Moynihan.

“He is ready to say others are making the schism, but (by his actions in continuing to support the Amazon Synod) he is provoking it himself,” the Vatican whistleblower continued.

“Is this the attitude of a pastor who cares for the faithful? It is his own duty to prevent a schism.” ….
