Conspiracy in the Vatican Enrique de Vicente (article originally appeared in no.

7 Year / Zero) in the fir st week of 1991, a news report from Italy jumped to the tickers of the world: Po pe John Paul I was not found dead in bed by his secretary but his body was disco vered by Sister Vicenza, seated in his office with a secret document from the Se cretary of State on the table and the new will drawn up by him in the Vatican, h e disappeared. The importance of such claims is that were made by the brother an d dearest niece of the late pontiff to an Italian journalist. So far, they had k ept secret the facts, which contradict the Vatican's official statement on the c ircumstances in which there was the mysterious death because they had been convi nced that what happened was due to "an inscrutable Providence 'and' did not appe ar well they knew that a nun came into his room. " An old woman who has continue d to suspect the information published on this subject, apparently, the news was only surprising that these relatives of the Pope came to join the massive choru s claiming it shed light on the confusing circumstances that occurred unexpected death. Just one month after death, the Spanish press announced the imminent pre sentation in Rome of the Pope has been murdered (Operation Dove), a novel in whi ch journalists Jesus Ramon Eduardo Pena and Mario Zottola argue that the death o f Pope Luciani "obeyed a purely economic movement ", because" the Vatican's fina ncial empire is one of the most powerful in the world "and" there are powerful r easons to try to eliminate the leader of this fortune. " However, earlier that s ame month, the traditionalist Roman followers of Archbishop Lefebvre and advance d the possibility that John Paul I was assassinated by the Freemasons infiltrate d the highest levels Vatican, which blame to promote the reformist tendencies in post-conciliar the Church, which supposedly would oppose the Pope. Some right-w ing magazines were accused of being affiliated with the Masons to Secretary of S tate of the Holy See, Cardinal Villot, the president of the Congregation for Bis hops, Cardinal Baggio, the Vatican banker, Archbishop Marcinkus and other prelat es. In 1980, Bruce Marshali fantasizes about the subject in his novel "A murdere r to Juan Pablo /?, In which the Pope Luciani is poisoned by the fictional socie ty of the new apostles, all twelve members oppose changes propelled by the Counc il Vatican II and support as pontiff to Cardinal Siri. Three years later in The real death of John Paul I, Jean-Jacques Thierry hypothesizes that Paul VI Villot replaced by a doublet and planned the death of his successor when he discovered the Masonic infiltration in the areas Vatican, the unusual theory twice that st ill hold quite a few ultra-conservatives. On a more serious and better documente d, Roger Peyrefitte, well versed in the intricacies of Masonry and the Vatican, held in The Red Sotana the thesis of a plot hatched by some prelates who had clo se relations with mobsters, financiers and leaders of the lodge P-2, concealing under pseudonyms very evident characters at this stage were already well known. And he describes the Pope as a liberal reformer committed to eradicate corruption from the dome of the Church, presenting Villot Marcinkus and as instigators of the crime, carried out by a p rofessional murderer with a poisoned needle, to avoid his imminent dismissal. Th at same year, the makers of bestselling G. Thomas and M. Morgan-Whitts Pontiff p ublished a highly documented research on the lives of the last three popes and t he critical circumstances in which they develop their pontificates, which sugges t that the hypothesis of murder was a rumor ably promoted by the Soviet KGB to d iscredit the Vatican at a time of great tension in its relations with the USSR. In the name of God The thesis of a conspiracy to assassinate Luciani with digita lis, to prevent the changes brought by the Pope to end corruption, is advocated in 1984 by David Yallop in his book In God's name, the result of three years of intensive research that included the illegal collaboration of some members of th e Vatican curia. Yallop shows that the Vatican covered up the circumstances in w hich death occurred and provides sufficient evidence necessary to consider openi ng a formal investigation. His book caused a scandal.€The situation was really ser ious. To the point of carrying an ultraconservative like Jean Parvulesco esoteri c to accept the possibility that John Paul I was executed to prevent the church would lead to a deviation theologically progressive and Third (referring to "rev

olutionary and anarchist dream" that Yallop attributed to Pope Luciani), and hol d a time, taking advantage of these circumstances, "Yallop and 'their partnershi p-faceless" intend to present the Vatican become "the most powerful criminal in the world." The President of the Pontifical Commission for Social Communications Yallop reacted to the book referring to the Vatican embassy and some Episcopal Conferences a few pages, prepared by Bishop Nicolini, in which countered the ass umption that "the lamented" John Paul I intended " revolutionize "the Vatican hi erarchy, explaining that" an environment conducive to imagine conspiracies is im possible for those who live in the Vatican daily reality, "adding that" the Pope 's health was rather sickly "and making clear that no matter who discovered the body of the Pontiff. Nevertheless, a survey published in 1987 showed that 30 per cent of Italians were convinced that the Pope of the smile was killed. A thief i n the night Conscious of the need for more compelling arguments, the Vatican aut horities encouraged to conduct an impartial investigation into the case to the j ournalist John Cornwell. They gave him some unprecedented facilities that allowe d him to interview the major players in the story were still alive, not to impos e any conditions; all-clear, with the hope that come to light evidence of the fa lsity of all conspiracy theories for over a decade I have been a source of disco mfort for the Roman Catholic Church. In Like a thief in the night, we explained that evidence began to take me to a conclusion that seems more shameful and more tragic than any of the conspiracies proposals so far: He despised by his clumsy gait, listless appearance , their innocent speeches, his simple language and im itated the whistling tone of his voice. They referred to him condescendingly, wi th diminutives. There were endless stories about his behavior and his blunders ... It was left to die by not feel q ualified to be Pope ... He died alone in the center of the largest Christian com munity in the world, negligence and lack of love, ridiculed and despised by the institution that existed to keep ... What is worse, Cornwell presents himself as someone sometimes little more than delusional and believes that "his gentleness , his distrust, their concerns about issues purely pastoral and pious, but not c oupled to a church that was facing challenges worldly of the eighties and nineti es. " In similar tune, to accept the lesser evil, the historian Ricardo de la Ci erva takes on The Secret Diary of John Paul I that there was an economic fabric, death threats, a conspiracy to kill the Pope, you become a Mason facilitates th e list of colleagues infiltrated the church and tells summit that will attack th e same week ... but eventually dies of natural causes, before they try to assass inate him. Since this is a historical novel, there is no way to discern the trut h of her fiction. This book, like its predecessor, intended to reassure more tha n a few consciences tormented by the possibility of such a crime, while increasi ng the confusion surrounding the issue. Let there be justice! And in those circu mstances was the controversy when, in early 1991, statements from relatives of J ohn Paul I came to add fuel to the boiler suspicions. As if God or the devil, be engaged in the Vatican's dirty laundry to continue to be news, or to create con fusion concerning the issue at hand, a week after the press announced the next o ccurrence of an explosive book. The American Jesuit Robert Graham, stated in the same the results of its extensive research on the plots of espionage-own and ot hers-that have been woven around the secrets of the Vatican, and which has invol ved not just religious. What struck me most of it was that a few weeks earlier, in mid December 1990, a small publishing company had begun shipping the first bo ok that I know of in which a priest supports the thesis of the murder: will be a sked account. In the opinion of its author, Spanish Jesus Lopez Saez, a graduate in theology, philosophy and psychology, this book was necessary,€and that of Corn well not only "did not please the Vatican but surpasses even the distortion that had been done to the image of Albino Luciani, and it is necessary to do justice ." "The problem of the death of John Paul I's there, he explains, and can be sol ved, not concealing or suppressing the issue, but trying to understand hearts. T here is much evidence that would justify an investigation in any rule of law. Th is is not attacking the Church, on the contrary, it stands for. The key is evang elical purification of the temple, a house of prayer and should not become a mar

ket or a den of robbers. Clearly, what is at stake is very serious: "Where there has been more business? "In the Vatican market in the old temple denounced by J esus? Not too many deaths that have accompanied these businesses? Have you ever stolen from the Church and the world the cause of death of John Paul I? ... Fail ure to respond adequately to these questions, the new evangelization will be dis credited as an old comedy, unfortunate and sterile. As the Lord in the Gospel of Luke: It will be held accountable. " They killed my father has ignored the reco mmendations prudent not to publish his book, knowing that an article on the same subject, published in the journal New religious life, cost cease to be responsible for adult catechesis in the Nat ional Secretariat. Coincidentally, that article hit the streets on October 4, 19 84, anniversary of the Pope's funeral, the day-chance-in all churches of the wor ld read a psalm in the Christian Community which is now responsible were especia lly associated with the death of John Paul I: "They handed over the body of your servants as food to the birds of heaven, the flesh of your friends with the bea sts of the earth ... Is known among the nations. " Talking to him, it is clear t hat professes an admiration and love for the figure of John Paul I. When the Epi scopal Commission explained that, even if true, it should be said, adding that i t is as if your father was a criminal, should be on family, he replied: "That is not the case and the case is that they have killed my father and I have nothing to silence him. " Coincidentally, the father of Jesús López was born the same day t he Pope Luciani: the October 17, 1912 ... If anything is to be accused of excess ive zeal and love, and seem to be sufficient for these reasons that the hierarch y can condemn their audacity, but, on the contrary, to excuse its potential exce sses. As he explains, Jesus Lopez visited in 1989, Pia, Luciani's niece along wi th her father Eduardo has starred in recent statements, and the latter's wife, A ntonia, who ended up confessing: We do not know why he died, and Sometimes we ha ve strange thoughts. They then handed a draft copy of his book, and in December 1990, sent the printed book. It is curious that, after twelve years of silence, especially now be encouraged to express their doubts, albeit timidly. Could ther e was this Spanish priest catalyst of this reaction? Although not so, there is t oo much synchronicity between them to ignore facts which are significant. But le t us see what are the facts underlying the controversy. Why was no autopsy? On S eptember 29, 1978, the Vatican officially informed that, around 5:30 that mornin g, "the Pope's private secretary, not Having been found in the chapel, as usual, has been found dead in bed with the light on as if it read. The doctor, Dr. R. Buzonetti, who came immediately, noted his death, probably around the 23 hours t he day before because of an acute myocardial infarction. " The accumulated evide nce subsequently showed that it was the sister Vincenza who discovered the body, entering the room of the Pope, puzzled because there was no answer to his insis tent calls. According to several witnesses, sat in bed with the lights on, glass es on, and some papers in his hands. The nun then ran to wake the secretary John Magee, who confirmed the death and called the cardinal Villot. Accompanied by t he doctor, the latter examined the body and called the embalmers. The problem is that the statements which they subsequently did not match those made by other w itnesses. Given the warm temperatures that have kept the body, which was also co rroborated by Sister Vincenza and the Secretary Lorenzi, embalmers believe that the death should have occurred between 4 and 5, and not the 11 that were confirm ed by Noah Bishop. Despite protests from some church,€Cardinal Oddi said that the Sacred College of Cardinals would not even consider opening an investigation int o the death, nor accept any control by anyone. But then he learned that the Card inals called know the precise circumstances in which that occurred, before the questions bein g posed by the public, the absence of a medical journal and the refusal of the H oly See to perform the autopsy on the body to eliminate any doubt. The problem i s that without an autopsy, it is clinically impossible to determine that a death was caused by acute myocardial infarction and instantaneous and that the typica l picture of it does not correspond with the provision that is claimed to have f

ound the body, since all seemed to indicate that there was no struggle with deat h. Moreover, the sober style of life of the Pope and low blood pressure did not suspect such an outcome, nor does it correspond to a brain hemorrhage or pulmona ry embolism, the other possibilities that have been cited Vatican sources. To ma ke matters worse, doctors Buzonetti and Fontana, who signed the death certificat e, said they had not provided medical services never Luciani, so they did not kn ow anything about the state of his health or on the medicines they take, nor bot hered ask those who might know. His death was so unexpected that Dr. Da Ros, per sonal physician of John Paul I, who had met the previous day with very good heal th, she could not believe. A slab of silence The Secretary of State imposed a vo w of silence to Sister Vincenza, to prevent him from telling what he had seen, b ut finally broke it, because, in his opinion, "the world must know the truth" ab out the death of this pope, whom she greatly admired. As we said Father Lopez Sa ez, "it seems that the Vatican does not want to know what the pope died, or do n ot want to know, and the official version has distorted the situation, giving co ncealment and repression of any further investigation into this enigma. " Accord ing to one of the specialists that have been required to study the circumstances in the deaths, Dr. Cabrera, "it could respond better to a death caused by subst ance depressant and occurred in deep sleep." Moreover, pinkish tone that still h ad his face at noon on 29 "appears in some poison, for example, carbon monoxide and cyanide." It is striking, "continues the Spanish priest, the rush to anoint the body Villot" standard procedure when a pope dies. This despite the fact that , in any rule of law, can only proceed with the embalming when 24 hours have pas sed since the death, as happened after the death of Paul VI. Contrary to what ha s been said, the rules of the Holy See or prohibit or order the autopsy of the p ontiffs, and through it, which obstinately rejected Villot could have determined whether there were acute or detected heavy metal poison, but it would severely hampered after the embalming. Even in 1989 the inhabitants of Luciani's hometown formed a committee to request an autopsy that was done that despite the years s till could clear some doubts. However, even though he has said the body was emba lmed without extracting blood or guts, Lorenzi ensures that the embalmers' retir ed parts of the body, possibly the viscera. " In that case, could be some kind o f autopsy. If so, why do not you say? Gennari's father, says that autopsy was do ne, confirming that the concerns and stress led inadvertently to the pope to tak e a vasodilator, contraindicated for low voltage. But in this case, given that L uciani was very careful with their medications and that these were controlled by the nurse Sister Vincenza, there is the possibility of a criminal change of medicines. As for reading that is between his hands when he died, have circulated several versions, but the Vat ican has finalized what it was, incomprehensibly. According to Germano Pattaro, Pope's theological adviser, "were some notes on the conversation of two hours th at the pope held talks the previous evening with Secretary of State Villot. To u nderstand the reasons why someone might be interested in ending the life of John Paul I, it is necessary to briefly recall a number of shady maneuvers that surf aced years later, which directly affect Vatican finances and reached Luciani par tially known. The Vatican Bank washes whiter As is apparent from the investigati ons conducted by Yallop, Gurwin, Sisti, Modolo, Di Fonzo, Piazzesi, Bonsanti,€Dome nech and Rupert Cornweil, the mafia used italonorteamericana Vatican financial i nstitutions to launder dirty money from drug trafficking and other criminal acti vities. Such an operation was conceived by Michelle Sindona, who began his caree r recycling the fortunes of the Gambino mobsters known New Yorkers, through a ho lding company. Slowly, is forging a true financial empire of international dimen sions. After handing the Cardinal Montini, the money needed for the construction of a nursing home, and really was donated by the CIA and the Mafia, becomes his friend and financial adviser. Via who later became Pope Paul VI, he meets Massi mo Spada, director of the Vatican Bank. Through the Continental Bank of Illinois , the fourth, part of whose shares have been acquired by Sindona, Vatican large investments will be channeled along the American continent. Sindona got into a c lose friendship with Licio Gelli, a powerful textile businessman who has fought

against the Republic during the Spanish Civil War, after enlisting in the SS Naz is and eventually working as an agent of the Soviet KGB for his life, an activit y that will soon come to join the CIA agent, while helping enrich their flight t o South America to many as the famous Nazi Klaus Barbie. Accused of having tortu red partisans, travels to Argentina, where he befriended the president Peron who became the first graced with dual nationality italoargentina and appointed him director of his country in Italy. Weave a network of contacts in Latin America, similar to that produced in Italy between businessmen, politicians and military. In 1966, encouraged many of these to join the group P-2, through which Gamberin i, Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy, aims to have a group of eminent pe rsons that were favorable and useful to Masonry , but soon escaped his control. The power of conviction and the growing influence of Gelli-already become Grand Master of the Lodge P-2-log lead many to believe that it will be very helpful in their careers. Gelli is dedicated to collect secrets that let you increase your power and blackmail others to integrate into his lodge, becoming the epicenter at the confluence of the most confidential information of the country, thanks to which handled many different instances. The Argentine friends Gelli To centrali ze its activities in Latin America, Gelli buy a mansion in Montevideo, boasting of being a friend of powerful businessmen and leaders right across the continent . Contributes to the return of Peron in 1973 as guests of honor at the inaugurat ion of his presidency and Andreotti said in amazement, the general awe that he professed, ensuring that sa w Perón knelt before Gelli. His influence in Argentina was insured ministroocultis ta successively by López Rega, and - after the military coup by General Suarez Mas on and Admiral Massera, linked to death squads and members of the P-2. Together with them, makes delicious Gelli business, buying mainly oil and weapons. Sindon a Gelli and introduced into the upper echelons of the labor Vatican Umberto Orto lani, a lawyer and Gentleman of His Holiness, who will become the deputy Gelli w ithin the P-2, thus knowing Monsignor Paul Marcinkus. Son of Lithuanian and rais ed in Chicago, in 1963 it had become the favorite burly bodyguard and interprete r of Paul VI, saving his life in Manila and earning their trust. When is respons ible for directing the Institute for Works of Religion (IQR), financial apparatu s of the Vatican, Bishop Marcinkus use the advice and international banking netw ork Sindona to invest much of the wealth of the Vatican, while Sindona uses bank ing structure of the Holy See to avoid taxes and launder money from the Mafia an d Gelli guarantees political umbrella of operations. The financial scandals Sind ona in 1973 has become the country's leading banker. Prime Minister greets him a s El Salvador of the lira and the U.S. ambassador calls him the man of the year. But the oil crisis, its speculation and rumors about his relationships with Maf ia help your empire to collapse in less than a year. Sindona fled to the United States and the Vatican lost a considerable figure in the operation, a fact belie d by Marcinkus, who denies knowing Sindona. Roberto Calvi, who met Pope Paul VI when he was archbishop of Milan,€became acquainted with Sindona, probably through Marcinkus Spada and when he was deputy director-general of Banco Ambrosiano. The re were ample reasons for this meeting: IOR owned much of the actions of the Amb rosiano and half of Finanbank, a Swiss bank Sindona. Thanks to support in 1971 C alvi became chairman of the bank and will soon be treasurer of the P-2. After th e crack Sindona, the IOR Calvi instructs its overseas investments, lending his n ame so he bought half the shares of the Mercantile Bank Marcinkus Florence and i s part of the board of the Bahamas branch of Ambrosiano. Gelli travels to New Yo rk, where Sindona had been arrested on charges of fraud and testified that his f riend was innocent victim of a communist plot. There, he presents Sindona Phil G uarino, director of Reagan's election campaign, whose inauguration will be invit ed. In 1977 Sindona reminds you consider them half of their business. Since it d oes not fulfill its promise to send money, two months after ordering the center of Milan wallpaper with bright posters denouncing Calvi as a swindler, scammer a nd currency trader, and finally extends to the governor of the Bank of Italy a l etter corral Calvi definitely. In 1979 Sindona Calvi renews its attacks and the Bank of Italy launches investigation into this entity. On behalf of the dividend

Amid these problems, Paul VI died in August and cardinals in choosing his succe ssor takes the Venetian Patriarch Albino Luciani. This brings popular pontiff st rongly air renewal. And he had already demonstrated its economic strength to two scandals, one of which involves the sale of Banca Calvi Católica del Veneto, by Marcinkus in 1972. After the operation, the bank sto pped making loans at low interest that had favored the less privileged. At the r equest of their bishops, Luciani began investigating, unable to believe what he found on Calvi and Sindona. When I said the problem Benelli, substitute of the S ecretariat of State, explained that he knew it was a most financial transactions contrived by bankers and Marcinkus to illegally evade taxes and speculate. Luci ani said: What does all this with the Church of the poor? In God's name. And Ben elli replied: "No. On behalf of the dividend. " So John Paul I know what to expe ct. Directs the Cardinal Villot audited financial IOR. Meanwhile, Calvi has begu n to divest all its shares when it learns that the Pope has decided to replace M arcinkus and attempt to return the church to an evangelical poverty. It is claim ed that on 12 September, the pope has in his possession a list of 121 names of V atican officials who allegedly belong to the Masons, which would include Villot, Casaroli and Marcinkus. The 13th calls urgently G. Pattaro as a counselor, conf essing his confusion to the relations of confrontation between members of the cu ria. Marcinkus, swear to Cornweil that neither he nor anyone else is Vatican Mas on, which is contradicted by much research. After hearing that maintains only th e Pope, says to his aides: "How awful! It seems exhausted! "It is dangerous to d rive out the merchants from the temple According to various testimonies, the Pop e proposed to replace Villot by Benelli-Marcinkus great adversary, as secretary of state, among other changes. On the afternoon of 28 has a long conversation wi th Villot in which he announced his decision to make significant changes and to terminate the relationship between the IOF and the Ambrosiano. That same night, Luciani dies. Some of those who were informed of the new direction planned by th e Pope was able to notify or Gelli Calvi. And someone who had access to the room could have caused his death Luciani. We know a few cases of priests who died of it. And we also have a list of attacks with the P-2-related deaths and the coll apse of Ambrosiano. Father López Sáez has put very clear and concise form the most i mportant evidence that led him to support the thesis that it was caused death, a nd until now the Vatican has not succeeded in refuting precisely. On the contrar y, in addition to many of the IOR criminal relations are more than well founded, its delivery of more than $ 240 million to creditor banks around the world for their responsibilities related to the collapse of Ambrosiano, show interest comm on to both entities. The strange decline of the lodge P-2 In his recent statemen ts, Eduardo Luciani, brother of Pope€explained the strange way that John Paul I to ok leave of him, three days before his death: We had never kissed or hugged, but that afternoon I wanted to kiss and hug. I asked if he was OK and I said yes. B ut I went with a mysterious feeling. Eduardo added that in his meetings with the pope, never referred to the problems of IOR, but before being elected pope he c onfessed: "Unfortunately, even the banks were founded by Catholics, who should h ave people you trust, rely on Catholic people who have neither the name. " 65 pr osecuted for crimes committed in the United States, is jailed in March Sindona 1980 and was granted his extradition to Italy where he was sentenced to life imp risonment for the death of the prosecutor in charge of investigating the collaps e of their banks. After two days of being locked in a maximum security prison, s uffers a rare attack described as heart attack or stroke, but that seems to have been produced by cyanide and died. Ortolani, accused of participating in the fr audulent bankruptcy of Ambrosiano, remains a refugee in South America several ye ars before returning to Italy, where it is processed. In March 1981, Italian pol ice attempts to stop Gelli as involved in the escape of Sindona, but it has disa ppeared from his residential village, where they find the archives of the P-2. A mong its 953 members discovered many of the most powerful in Italy, including An dreotti and other former prime ministers, three ministers in active, 90 judges, 43 parliamentarians, leaders of all parties except the Communist, bankers, owner

s and managers day, 183 officers of the three armies, including the Armed Forces Commander and two managers of the intelligence services. The strategy of tensio n when the press discovers a crisis begins, culminating with the collapse of the coalition government led by Foriani, many of whose employees were members of th e P-2. As one of the prosecutors explained, the Lodge P-2 'combined business and politics with the intention of destroying the country's constitutional order. " He was referring to the implications of P2 in terrorist attacks in Italy create d a strategy of tension that predisposed to several coup attempts, which involve d the Lodge, at the same time encouraged the fear of various actors to the Commu nists came to power within a mare magnum of strange relationships CIA, Mafia and Freemasonry remained in Italy since World War II and were related to high ranki ng Vatican. In July, Gelli's daughter went to Italy without concealing his ident ity, being detained at the airport and found a false bottom in his luggage a num ber of documents relating to the P-2, one of which is described as a secret repo rt falsified the CIA related to attempts to subvert Western Europe and Italy in particular. It is unthinkable that, after being removed from the country, such d ocuments are made available to the police, unless after such a maneuver to hide a hidden agenda. Since the journalist P. Hebbiethhwaite was surprised that the f iles had no names Gelli Italian Communists or other countries, is complicated to understand how, without such intermediaries had done good business with east Eu ropean countries and made friends with the dictator Ceaucescu, suspecting that s uch names could have been eliminated by Gelli himself that would have all the ma terial ready to be found, instead of having destroyed. Stephen Knight, an impart ial investigator who has denounced the infiltration of British Freemasonry KGB, said that Gelli worked for Soviet intelligence and maintains that the P-2 was a program sponsored by the KGB to destabilize Italy and bring the Communists to po wer for the first time in a Western country. This would explain why in his opini on was among its archives a document that describes the structure of KGB, though not asked why he left behind him, and the hidden motives of the scandal of the P-2 and connection with the assassination attempt on John Paul II May 13, 1981, shortly after discovery of the documents of the Lodge. But that's another story and the keys to the whole mess could have gone to another level: the dark designs of the forces that govern the global chess strange dialectic, reaching " beyond good and evil", as will another time. A journey of no return the 20th of that same month, Calvi was arrested by the collapse of Banco Ambrosiano, exertin g enormous pressure on Marcinkus and Menini, managers of the IOR, to come to the ir aid,€communicating to his wife and daughter to abnormal operations for which th ey would process had been carried out on behalf of the Vatican bank, according t o documents stored in the Gotthard Swiss Banking. A year after being convicted a nd released on bail, Calvi flies to London. Some suspect that seeks help in a Lo dge in London, which claimed to belong and that is troubling powerful financial influence. Sea horn case, her body is found hanging from a London bridge with po ckets full of stones. A Milan court will hold that he was killed, while his wido w says "was the victim of fierce fighting Vatican," and recalls that when he cal led Gelli Calvi to blackmail him and asked him who he was, since 1978 always ans wered, Luciani, the name of Papa died that year. When Yallop tried to interview him by phone to his book on the life of John Paul I, Calvi grumpy replied: "Who sent you to me? I always pay. What Gelli knows? How much do you want? Do not wri te that book. Do not ever call me again. " Involved in the collapse of Ambrosian o, Gelli was imprisoned in 1982 in a maximum security prison, from which escapes a year later. In 1986 the Supreme Court involves you in the brutal killing of B ologna, conducted by right-wing elements with the knowledge of the intelligence services controlled by him, and he tried to blame the Bulgarian and Soviet secre t services, as in the attack Pope Wojtyla. Extradited for his financial crimes, spent a short time in jail, conditionally released on health grounds. A Holy Spi rit's work contrasts the image of John Paul I wanted to give in certain areas Va tican with which it has retained the common people. An anonymous Cornweil Bishop confesses: "The Holy Spirit did a good job, get rid of it before I did too much damage." Don Diego Lorenzi, one of his secretaries, he confirmed: "I would like

to change. He does not deserve. " "This pope got a huge popular affection of or dinary people," says the father Farusi, director of Vatican Radio's information. He felt even more popular than John XXIII, was even more holy, more humble, mor e modest, more simple. It was thought it was a holy Pope, close to its people. " It is clear that a pope and had to be uncomfortable for many in an environment that has changed the humility, charity and love for the purple, the protocol and bureaucracy. His kingdom was not of this world and that world despised him.
