Last week, Vatican police raided five of the Vatican’s top offices as part of a financial investigation. On this episode of “Inside the Vatican,” Gerry and I break down what we know and what questions remain about this raid—the first of its kind to have been made public by the Vatican.
Next up, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Pope Francis delivered a strong message about loyalty to the pope to the 13 new cardinals the pope created this weekend. Gerry gives us some insights about how this message was received.
Finally, the Synod on the Amazon is in full swing. Gerry explains the moving prayer service that kicked off the synod, and we unpack the direction Pope Francis has laid out for this meeting. We also talk about why women haven’t been allowed to vote in the synod, and whether that may change.
