Serious Death Threat Against Cardinal Bertone

Editor: the author of the letter is angry about +Bertone's appointments... Letter writer is clearly well informted about the Roman Curia
Rome ( Cardinal Secretary Tarcicio Bertone may have received an anonymous murder threat. In the past days a letter received by the Secretary of State, which began with an advertisement for burial, was reported by the weekly in its most recent edition (Thursday). The Cardinal Secretary has sent the letter in the meantime to the Vatican Police, which has begun to direct a manhunt. The threat is, in the report by "Panorama" clothed in a citation from Don Bosco, the founder of the Salesian Order, to which ++Bertone belongs. The sender is clearly very well informed about the goings on in the Roman Curia, writes the newspaper. The author reproaches ++Bertone for his personnel decisions which apparently are the result of personal sympathies. The letter sender is especially incensed about the promotion of Arcbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the outgoing director of the Governorate of the Vatican State. He alludes especially to the appointment of +Vignano as Apostolic Nuncio to Washington. Link to
