U.S. VATICAN & UN-TRAINED CATHOLIC VATICAN DIPLOMACY SCHOLAR CREATES PETITION TO CONTINUE THE VATICAN ANTI-CORRUPTION CAMPAIGN BEGUN BY ARCHBISHOP CARLO VIGANO, NOW APOSTOLIC NUNCIO TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA--
CITES VATICAN'S 2006 "FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION"
CONFERENCE IN PETITION
The Institute has created an "End Vatican Corruption" Petition at www.petitionsite.com to Continue the Inside-the-Vatican Anti-Corrupton Campaign begun by Archbishop Carlo Vigano, the former Secretary General of the Governatorate of the State of Vatican City responsible for the oversight of the multiple and complex network of office operations that compose the State of Vatican City's municiple infrastructure. Please Join the Institute on Vatican Law, Diplomacy & International Human Rights in Continuing the Heroic and Courageous Campaign Against Corruption in the Workplaces of the State of Vatican City and in the institutioanal Catholic Church at all levels, to include the Holy See's Pontifical Ecclesiastical Diplomatic Missions, begun by Archbishop Carlo Vigano.
Our goal is to continue the leadership legacy of Archbishop Carlo Vigano in fighting for moral and legal regulatory compliance and transparent accountability in all the workplaces of the municipality of the State of Vatican City, in accordance with Sacred Scripture, Catholic Social Doctrine, The Church's Sacred Teachings and Its Constitutional and Ecclesiastical Laws.
Join Us! Help Us to Honor an Archbishop of the Catholic Church Who Had the Courage to Take What Has Become A Dangerous and Difficult, Sometimes Life-Threatening Task--Cleaning Up The Vatican's Culture of Corruption. It Has Become Apparent That There Are Some Employees and Officials in the Vatican Who Insist on Condoning This Culture of Corruption and Do Not Want Other Vatican Employees and Officials to Clean-up the Vatican.
Because any one or two Vatican employees or individuals who seek to fight corruption in the Vatican are out-numbered by the 2,900 or so other Vatican employees and officials who are members of the Association of Vatican Lay Workers (ADLV), those few who are brave enough to take on the task of fighting Vatican Corruption are outnumbered at the Vatican and urgently need your and my help. Because fighting against Vatican Insider Corruption is still a dangerous, although noble initiative, most Vatican employees and Vatican officials will not venture to fight such a battle as they have seen first-hand what happens to those who take on this cross--their lives and families are threatened, their jobs are taken away and their reputations are smeared in the public press. We too take this risk if we sign up to assist and support them, but one has to ask oneself, "which is the nobler task, turning a blind eye to corruption or joining in the fight to keep corruption out of the Church Christ established on earth--since not to join in the fight is to be complicit in the corruption? Moreover fighting for social justice in the Church or in society is always the right thing to do!
The global and universal Catholic Church community outside the State of Vatican City must use its quantitative moral, political and financial leverage to help root out corruption in the Vatican committed by a corrupt few by assisting those minority Vatican employees and officials who also want to see the corruption in the Vatican eradicated. We Must Not Allow a Few Corrupt Vatican Employees and Officials Engage in Vatican Workplace Corruption at Our Expense or in Our Name. It is Our Personal Parish and Diocesan Contributions, Donations and In-Person Patronage of the Vatican's Museums, Post Offices, Libraries, BookStores and Other facilities that Fund the Vatican's Operations and Allow it to Function--and that gives the 3,000 Vatican employees their prestigious jobs at the Vatican, i.e., When We Attend Mass at the Vatican We Give Generously To the Offering Taken During the Offering of the Gifts or Offertory. All these funds, in addition to Vatican investments and City State revenue, provide for Vatican State/Holy See job salaries, benefits, programs, events, operations and resources. Not to Fight This Vatican Corruption is to be complicit in it! Let's Follow Vigano's Lead and Fight Against Vatican Corruption. Please Prayerfully Read the Petition, which includes the "Fight Against Corruption" Conference Statement of the Vatican State/Holy See's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, published in 2006, and Consider Signing the Petition and Joining Us in Continuing Archbishop Vigano's Vatican Anti-Corruption Campaign even though Archbishop Vigano is no longer employed at the Vatican and is no longer involved in Campaign he waged when he was employed at the Vatican State, and is now the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States.
**Archbishop Carlo Vigano is not involved in this petition in any way. However, he is the inspiration behind this initiative and this petition was created to honor and continue the anti-corruption work at the Vatican he had begun. His daring, courageous and noble efforts and leadership efforts to end corruption in the Vatican continue to inspire The Institute in its work. May God be praised. The Church is blessed to have episcopal leaders like Archbishop Carlo Vigano. We need to support bishops that lead in good works, who trust God and do not count the cost to their own personal lives.
