Game of Hide and Seek Around the Confirmation of ++Gänswein and +Marini

Francis with the Master of Ceremonies from Benedict XVI., Guido Marini
(Rome) The strange game of hide-and-seek whether Curia Archbishop Georg Gänswein as Prefect of the Papal Household or Msgr. Guido Marini Pontifical Master of Ceremonies have been confirmed.
In the past week rumors had arisen that both close collaborators of Pope Benedict XVI. and Pope Francis may no longer be confirmed in office. They would face the same fate that met Cardinal Gerhard Müller as Prefect of the Congregation of the Faith last June .
On December 15, Guido Horst, the Rome correspondent of the Tagespost wrote:
"But is now the mystery of the Vatican more transparent? The technology is becoming more modern. But Glasnost does not mean that. Three examples: The Internet had speculated on whether the pope would extend the term of office of Archbishop Georg Gänswein as Prefect of the Papal Household and that of the Master of Ceremonies Guido Marini. As insiders confirm with certainty, Francis did that."
Horst did not refrain from making a swipe at the less transparent information policy of the Holy See:
"Why did you not know this? A note in the Vatican Bulletin would have been enough and the rumors would end."

External middleman "confirms" Master of Ceremonies in office

This note to put an end to the rumors, but had not been published in the Vatican Bulletin. Instead of the direct route that Guido Horst had called for, a strange path was chosen. A middleman was rushed forward. This is the House and Court Vaticanist of Pope Francis. Without a doubt, Andrea Tornielli is a close confidant of the ruling church leader, but without official function.
Tornielli published on the coordinated by him news platform Vatican Insider the article:
"The Pope confirms his ceremoniar Guido Marini".
It says:
"Pope Francis has renewed the commission of the Genoese Prelate for five years, who Benedict XVI. had called to the Vatican. Possibility of a change refuted. "
Tornielli continues:
"In the past few weeks, when the confirmation had already been given to the person concerned, indiscretions circulating in the Vatican palaces spread about a possible change. In reality, the relationship between the Pope and his Master of Ceremonies remains fixed, and Francis appreciates the faithfulness of Msgr. Marini, who has the task of overseeing every papal liturgy."
Strangely enough, Santa Marta uses an external middleman to make such a statement official, as the Vatican daily bulletin is responsible for. Or as Guido Horst said:
"A note in the Vatican Bulletin would suffice."
Apart from that, the Vatican Insider message only concerns Mgr. Guido Marini. For the time being, not even the papal middleman Tornielli knows the fate of Curial Archbishop Georg Gänswein.
Katholisches.info wrote on December 18 to the whole thing:
Glasnost was Michael Gorbachev. Pope Francis it is not. "

Bishop Johnston New Bishop of Kansas City

Edit: here's the Bishop according to wiki who'll be replacing the last actually conservative Bishop of Kansas City who was ousted not so much by due process but in trial by media.  He is hedging his bets in the Inmemorial Mass of All Ages:

Considered somewhat conservative in his views, Johnston supports the celebration of Tridentine Mass, but has said he does not "hold a great personal attachment to it" due to his relatively young age. He also supports the use of Gregorian chant and polyphony. He has cited Dolly PartonChet Atkins, and Alan Jackson as some of his favorite musical artists.

"Hit and Sunk" -- Pope Francis Promotes Former Critic to Useless Position in CDF

(Rome / Buenos Aires) Monday brought two newsworthy events in Rome. One as Pope Francis "sunk" a former critic in Argentina. On the other hand is was announced that  the Argentine Pope has given  the Italian Bishops Conference more leeway than any other pope, who  in reality has put it on a shorter leash  than any predecessor.
On Monday afternoon Pope Francis opened the Spring General Assembly of the Italian Episcopal Conference with a speech. Unlike any that has ever been given. The Pope as Bishop of Rome as automatically been the President since the formation of the Episcopal Conference. All Popes so far, however, are represented by a delegate appointed by them, but never intervened obviously  by their presence in the work of the Bishops' Conference. With the election of Pope Francis everything seemed to be quite different.

Pope Francis Intevenes a More in Bishops Conference than any pope before

Surprisingly the Argentine Pope announced that he would  dispense with the nominal presidency and offered the bishops of the to choose a president for themselves from their own ranks in the future as all the other Bishops' Conferences (except Belgium). Since then Pope Francis has only intervened  more and more significantly in the Italian Episcopal Conference than any other pope before him. The  president,  appointed by Benedict XVI., Archbishop Angelo Cardinal Bagnasco of Genoa although he is still in office, however, Pope Francis has appointed a deputy and a new Secretary General. Both offices have been occupied on a proposal of the presiding delegate. Bagnasco only learned later of the personnel decisions of the Pope, which equaled his disempowerment in both cases.
"Only laconically," says the Vaticanista Sandro Magister, was he informed by the Holy See with a terse press statement of a change in Personnel. "The Holy Father Francis, has appointed S. Ex. Monsignor José Luis Mollaghan, formerly Metropolitan Archbishop of Rosario (Argentina), as a member of the to be erected commission for clerics at the CDF to address delicta graviora."

Punitive Action Against Archbishop Mollaghan of Rosario

Rosario is an Archdiocese of two million inhabitants. "Archbishop Mollaghan, at 68, has certainly not yet reached the end of his career," said Magister. The abrupt removal from Argentina, his appeal to Rome under the direct control of the pope and his banishment to a not even existing curial phantom office, which is not yet built, says everything about the fact that the impact is definitive,"  says the Vaticanist.
To understand the reason for this punishment by Pope Francis against one of the most renowned Argentine bishops, Magister suggests the  "most accurate and credible", to look up the previously existing  Pope's biographies in the book, "Francis, Life and Revolution" by the Argentine journalist Elisabetta Piqué .

Criticism of Bergoglio: Too Lenient About Politics, Pastoral Gestures Too Daring, Too Little Defense of the Doctrine of the Faith

In the chapter,  that pique applied by the opponents of Bergoglio in Argentina, Archbishop Mollaghan in place together with Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata and the Apostolic Nuncio Adriano Bernardini in the first place. Mollagahan had not only  accused the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires of not to defending Catholic doctrine, but of making bold, exaggerated or inappropriate gestures and being too pastorally soft on government.
Contact for the critics Bergoglios in Rome were originally from Argentina Cardinal Leonardo Sandri and former Argentine ambassador to the Holy See, Esteban "Cacho" Caselli  who appears now as before a continuing Gentleman of His Holiness appearing in the Pontifical Yearbook.

Past Episcopal Appointments Archbishop Bergoglio

The opposition  against the line of the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, says Piqué, reaches its climax in 2005/2006 reaches its climax when Nuncio Bernardini  appointmented  several bishops who were "embossed conservatives". Among them was also the new Archbishop of Rosario, José Luis Mollaghan and that of Resistencia, Fabriciano Sigampa. The appointments caused, according to Piqué,  progressive bishops unrest and discontent. Neither Mollaghan nor Sigampa had been named by the other Argentine bishops for these dioceses, said the journalist of La Nacion .
The Argentine website Pagina Catolica is a little clearer. The appointment of Archbishop Mollaghan was made ​​by bypassing  three candidates by Archbishop Bergoglio, who had operated as Archbishop of Buenos Aires in an intensive personnel policy in the appointment of bishops. While Bergoglio let the theologian who was admonished by  Rome, Galician  Andrés Torres Queiruga, whom the CDF  accused of "implicitly"  denying the resurrection of Jesus Christ, continue to speak freely in his diocese in 2012, Mallaghan imposed a ban for his diocese in Catholic institutions.
Archbishop  Sigampa has been emeritus since February 2013. As was the case under Benedict XVI. he was still  Archbishop until the completion of the 77th year of life in office. On February 26, 2013 it took two days  after the resignation German Pope for the resignation of Sigampa. Archbishop Mollaghan has now been "hit and sunk" by Pope Francis, says Magister. Only Archbishop Aguer of La Plata is still in place. "But his fate seems sealed", so  at least says the Vaticanist Magister.
