Viganò Has Been Successfully Sued by Brother

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò brought Pope Francis into grave distress. Since then, the Vatican diplomat has been in the spotlight. This also brought a lawsuit with his brother to the public.



(Rome) The matter would have gone unnoticed by the public, but currently the spotlight is on the former nuncio in the US, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò - especially those of his opponents, since the end of August with a dossier has caused Pope Francis dissstress in the sexual abuse scandal.

In the raging war since then, on smaller and larger fronts, a multi-faceted exchange of blows is taking place. This includes a message distributed today by the Italian press agency ANSA, which dates back to 9 October.

At that time, a single judge in Milan ruled in the first instance that Archbishop Viganò must pay his biological brother Lorenzo Viganò, who is also a priest, 1.8 million Euros. The reason is an inheritance dispute between the two brothers. The brother of the former top diplomat of the Vatican feels he is owed a part of his father's inheritance. The judge in Milan proved him right.

In total, there are six siblings, among which the inheritance of the father was divided. The other four siblings, unaffected by the lawsuit, issued a public statement in 2013 defending Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò and protecting him from the attacks by his brother Lorenzo. However, he continued his lawsuit.

Archbishop Viganò manages the paternal inheritance, which in 2010 consisted of seven million euros in cash and 20 million euros in real estate. According to Judge Susanna Terni, Archbishop Viganò has to pay his brother Lorenzo a "compensation payment" of 1.8 million euros.

The judgment is not final.

Is Lorenzo being put up to it I wonder?

Peter W said...

Vigano can't be trusted with the family wealth and he cannot be trusted with the level of confidentiality he swore on oath to preserve.
He's another showboat who has been exposed for what he is. But that won't keep those with vested interests in subverting Francis and his Magisterium. Despite the fact that hey have run out of heroes and any remaining honour has been compromised the scale of rationalization and fake news will be/ is already breathtaking.

Tancred said...

How do you know he can’t be trusted with the family wealth? Is that what your siblings say about you and your high-brow Marxist ways?

Peter W said...

Ask Lorenzo and QED about running deflection, smoke screen operations and rationalization gymnastics of Olympian proportions.
Do not stop at Go.

CRS said...

Vigano clearly lacks any moral integrity.

Blotto said...

In that case, the regime currently occupying the Vatican should be welcoming him with open arms.

Anonymous said...

What does his father's will say? Archbishop Vigano has clearly been left as the administrator of the will and as such, if he is in charge of all the money and land, then he is acting on behalf of the other four of his sibling also. This appears more as a dispute of the father's will rather than a case of Archbishop Vigano taking all the inheritance and refusing to share it. Perhaps Vigano senior knew his children best!

THIS IS FAMILY MATTER AN NO ONES BUSINESS BUT THE FAMILY

God bless Archbishop Vigano; the probate courts are notoriously corrupt see Dickens Bleak House for a few of the details.

Constantine said...

@CRS making accusations and statements without reasonable evidence is a sin that needs to be confessed. As much I detest Francis, I never just come out with such rash judgement.

Tancred said...

Does he actually believe in auricular confession?

Peter W said...

Anything to deflect attention away from the fact that a civil court has found Archbishop Vigano derelict in the way he has 'administered' the family inheritance.
The entirely predictable effort to put scorched earth around Vigano also involves turning a blind eye to the fact that Vigano claims the primacy of his own conscience over the oath he took to uphold the Pontifical Secret. This oath specifically rules out recourse to the conscience of the one taking it. Vigano is steeped in what Benedict XVI called the culture of 'moral relativism.'
He's the one many on this site are claiming is the last hope of 'orthodox' Catholicism and moral purity.

Tancred said...

How was he derelict?

Peter W said...

Read the court judgment and then take a look at the hole Vigano has dug for himself in choosing to violate an oath he swore to keep:

ART. IV
Qui ad secretum pontificium ratione muneris admittuntur, iusiurandum dare debent iuxta formulam, quae sequitur:
Ego . . .
constitutus coram . . .
tactis per me sacrosanctis Dei Evangeliis, promitto me fideliter (secretum pontificium) servaturum esse in causis et in negotiis quae sub eodem secreto sunt tractanda [2], adeo ut nullo modo, sub quovis praetextu, sive maioris boni, sive urgentissimae et gravissimae causae, secretum praefatum mihi violare liceat.
Secretum, ut supra, me servaturum esse promitto etiam causis et negotiis finitis, pro quibus tale secretum expresse imponatur. Quod si in aliquo casu me dubitare contingat de praefati secreti obligatione, in favorem eiusdem secreti interpretabor. Item scio huiusmodi secreti transgressorem peccatum grave committere.
Sic me Deus adiuvet, et haec Sancta eius Evangelia, quae propriis manibus tango.
Hanc Instructionem PAULUS VI, Summus Pontifex, in Audientia infrascripto concessa die IV mensis Februarii, anno MDCCCCLXXIV, approbavit et publici iuris fieri iussit, ea lege ut a die XIV mensis Martii eiusdem anni vigeret, contrariis quibuslibet non obstantibus.
IOANNES Card. VILLOT

Tancred said...

Meh, get your citation.

Bruno Q said...

Peter W, can you post a link to the judgment of the Milanese court?

Peter W said...

Bruno Q, yes I can.

Bruno Q said...

Great, I would be very interested to read the judgment.

Peter W said...

Then look it up. I did or do you reside in a sheltered workshop?

Bruno Q said...

Look it up where? First Instance Italian civil judgments are not published (and indeed the whole proceedings are held completely in private). Given your reaction I suspect that you have not seen the judgment either, but am very happy to be corrected, since I would genuinely like to read the judgment.

Peter W said...

So much for proceedings held in private, Bruno. Clearly the
a similar kind of 'Pontifical Secret' either does not apply to Italian judicial system or its dealt with by court officials in the same cavalier fashion Vigano treated it and the family jewels for that matter.

isleAwhile said...

P.W., sounds like a disparagement of sheltered workshops that can do an excellent job of assisting people with disabilities. Not very fair...

Constantine said...

Italians are not known to be rigorists, except when it comes to bureaucracy."White" lies, such as lies to protect family, are not a sin in Italy,except if you are caught, and someone had to find a pretext to get you.

Anonymous said...

Educate Lorenzo Vigano about the matter of fairness. His colorful brother's cred has been judged to be a till ticker and one who broke an oath he swore to observe.

I would think that Carlo will not make it to 'Servant of God' status after these spectacular performances.

Tancred said...

So you’re just talking out of your fancy hat as usual.

Peter W said...

The Dubia Bros, the bogus campaign against Amoris Laetitia and now Vigano have all gone belly up for the Faithful Remnant. We await the next instalments of the Nardi, De Mattei, Lifesite beat ups. And people fork out a fortune for entertainment!

Tancred said...

There’s a mound of evidence to suggest otherwise, and you have yet to disprove anything with your incriminations, racial slurs, slander and calumny.

Peter W said...

Well done again Tancred for yet another example of your trademark obscurantism rooted in vague allegations and wrapped in resentment.

Tancred said...

Peter W, that’s exactly what you do. When asked to support your bon mots you’re mute, and ghey.

Peter W said...

Yawn. Bring back Nardi.

Tancred said...

Back up your claims or go back to rummaging through waste bins you mental vagrant.

Peter W said...

You're really playing to your fan when you demand things of others when your whole operation is founded on ambit unsubstantiated allegations, innuendo, gossip, dissemblance and outright lies all in the name of a corrupted and thoroughly discredited ideology of nostalgia, restorationism and selective ultramontanism.
You have run out of heroes Tancred. They have turned out to be singularly inept, shallow, self-interested show boats like the Dubia boys and lately, Vigano. You and the rest of the ecclesiastical check out press such at NCRegister, ETWN, Lifesite, OnePeterFive, Zulhlsdorf, First Things etc have gone all quiet on him as have the stellar dunderheads Cordeleone, Sample, Chaput, Paprocki, Morlino and pack members.

Have a big think about it Tancred. It might help clear up your confusion.

Tancred said...


What specifically is unsubstantiated? Here we go again.

Did you find your citations yet?

Think about how you build up heavy burdens for others to carry and have no intention of bearing them yourself.

Peter W said...

Now turn all that around and apply it to yourself, Tancred instead of bleating appeals the persecution and martyrdom syndrome. And think about those poor bastards you and your pals vilify as sodomites when you have no way of knowing what they are. If you are serious about dropping your tonnage, Mundabor style, on anybody and everybody you abhor as degenerate 'homosexuals' then know that your targe it around 80-90% of the Catholic clergy including bishops and across the ideological spectrum of 'libs' and 'trad/conservatives.' The same goes with the ambit pattern bombing on 'heretics.'

Read some decent books. Better you mind and practice what you bleat.

Tancred said...

You’re the one making the claims.

Who are the intellectual candles that draw you like a moth? Ray Brown, Andrew Greeley, Archbishop Weakland, Card. Suennens, Bishop Cawcutt, Card. McCarrick, Card. Mahony, Bishop Gumbleton, Bishop Ray Lucker, Card. Daneels?

Surely, these are a few of your guiding lights.

Peter W said...

Here we go again with the classic examples of unsubstantiated claims and drawing baseless conclusions. What you are trotting out here is one of the principle reasons why the trad/conservative media/blogs don't pass the probity test. All your heroes have fallen on their collective ass and your causes gone the way of whale do dos.

Tancred said...

Take some time out on posting to pick up your dole check. You clearly have nothing better to do.

CrS said...

Tancred said...
Does he actually believe in auricular confession?

November 18, 2018 at 12:43 PM

Clearly not. If Vigano believed in the holy Sacrament of Penance he would not make his outrageous calumnies against the Vicar of Christ on Earth or attempt to swindle his own relatives. He demonstrates himself to be a man lacking moral integrity and an open enemy of our Holy Father the Pope.

Tancred said...


How are they calumnies? If they were calumnies, don’t you think Bergoglio’s probabably cocaine fueled public relations people would have proven him to be lying?

Our gay, possibly underemployed cleric, but probabably unemployed 35-50 year old n’er do well has already expressed HIS doubts about auricular confession.

Peter W said...

Good for you CrS for exposing the shallow hypocrisy of aggrieved careerist clerics such as Vigano and the thin veneer of support from his fair weather friends whose only comeback when challenged is to hurl willy a barrage of ad hominem, ad baculum and other ad absurdums. No wonder the trad/conservatives are morally and intellectually bankrupt.

Barnum said...

Every one of them, Peter W Gaybriel?

Peter W said...

Ah, Barnum, you're back from Rehab. I do hope the treatment has been efficacious and is progressively assisting you to function again after all these years of bottling up those inner demons.

By the way, who is 'Gaybriel'?

Barnum said...

QED

Tancred said...

The deceitful gaybriel affirming himself with sock puppets again.

It truly is a marvel that British socialism has allowed such marvels of industry on behalf of a fading cult.

Barnum said...

Gabriel is to Catholicism what Theresa May is to Brexit.

Peter W said...

Deep!

Barnum said...

Interesting. Defends someone he pretends not to know...

Anonymous said...

Look at church militants report on the truth of this half truth story, dated Dec. 7th. Its this showboat of vipers in the vatican that don't want the truth out. The clergy have becone the enemies of Christ's church and must be exposed and defrocked. Dont protect these lovers of self. Wicked boasters.they are disgusting.
