    Now that this is well and truly old news… I checked with my peeps (one of whom is in daily contact with person who actually acted as the in-person go between for the Pope and Kim Davis) and, at the risk of sounding like Kimmie, I can now confirm that this is not only spin, but false spin. I can’t say more than that, but sometimes the simple narrative is true. Vigano turned 75 and the Pope accepted his resignation; the most you could say is that as a B16 fellow, the transition period is over, and certain positions like the American Nunciature will go to folks who have cultivated their F1 relations over the past 3 years.

    His replacement, Pierre, is JP2/B16/Diplomatic corps lifer – so no hopey/changey pick there… The interesting thing is that as Nuncio to Mexico he’s partly responsible for the scorching delivered last month by F1 to the Mexican bishops. So, somehow he has managed to distance himself from that and gratiate himself w/F1… but that’s what the diplomatic corps has always done.Report
