Clear as Mud................

I thought the CDF was supposed to communicate the results of this morning's deliberations direct to the Holy Father. There was no need for them to make a public communique. I am perhaps naive but it seems to me that they are not playing to the rules. (The reasons yet again suggest how strong the antii-Benedict faction is in the corridors of power.) Then Fr Lombardi has to throw in his two cents and something which looked as if it had a chance of fairly neat conclusion becomes  as clear as mud.  His comment on the communique was even more unnecessary and unhelpful than the communique itself.

'Smoke and mirrors.'  May the Holy Father dispel the smoke and break the mirrors. .
