I have a lot of respect for Frontline and PBS. They invariably do good, if not outstanding, work. The “Secrets of the Vatican” is no exception. I DVRed it last night and this morning watched a few minutes. Judging from the opening ‘teaser’ they appear to be hitting all of the germane hot buttons (and as somebody who watches what happens at the Vatican on a daily basis, I do know what is relevant and what is ‘fluff’, even if I say so myself).

From the little bit that I saw, I was hooked. It seems right on the mark. Just wanted to give you a heads up. It appears that it is available on via PBS online. Here is the link: http://to.pbs.org/1fkZvZC.

That there were two semi-related ‘announcements’ today, one by “Gorgeous George”, Georg Gäenswein, the ex-pope’s mole in the new pope’s household and the other by ex-pope Ratzinger himself — both related to why the ex-pope became ex-pope, seems coincidental. I think they were prompted by the Frontline documentary, the Vatican always paying very close attention to what is said on U.S. documentaries about the popes.

‘Legionaries of Christ’ post
given that they ‘feature’ at the start of this documentary.
