Happy Triduum from DC

I was going to say that during the Sacred Triduum, I would only write a blog post if there were earth-shattering news. Of course, the triduum celebrates the last bit of genuinely earth-shattering news. So, let’s all move away from our computers (except to check in with Whispers now and then) for these holy days and focus on the Mystery of our redemption. A happy and holy Triduum to you all.

In this third letter Archbishop Viganò no longer insists, as he did so forcefully in his first letter, that the restrictions that he claimed Benedict XVI had imposed on Archbishop McCarrick—one he alleges that Pope Francis later lifted—can be understood as “sanctions.”
