Another one down the mercy path


It’s so great that yet another person close to the pope died in a situation that casts doubt on their eternal salvation.

Police called in as Pope Francis’ seven-month pregnant secretary, 34, is found DEAD in her Rome apartment

“Police are investigating a case of neglect and have interviewed family members, her ex-husband from whom she was separated, and most recent boyfriend, thought to be a policeman in the Vatican, according to Rome-based newspaper il Messaggero.”

If only someone near her had the spiritual gravitas to convince her not to be in an adulterous relationship.

I don’t know, like maybe a priest or a spiritual director or some sort of cleric or something.

    Neglect could mean she stopped taking her insulin.

  2. Aloysius Gonzaga says:

    That sort of candid warning is not part of the mercy program. In any case it is a tragedy for her and the baby.

    A case of ‘neglect’? What does that mean under these circumstances? She was working so presumably had a salary, co-workers, neighbours in the apartment house…did she starve to death? Did she have parents? Was she off work for weeks before this happened? I guess it will all come out.

    Let’s be generous. She may have died with an act of contrition on her lips.
