They are best known for their relentless & ruthless missionary activity, commitment to education & intelligentsia, and their devotion to discipline.

Pope Francis now, whether he likes it or not, the most famous Jesuit of them all, the first Jesuit to be Pope.

The next most famous has to be St. Francis Xavier — the notorious, crusading missionary.

And then there was, thanks to him having been the Director of the Holy See Press Office for 10 years, nut-job, Federico Lombardi, S.J. (b: 29 August 1942).

He was, indubitably, quite the person — a physician, academic, journalist and an inspired diplomat.

He was outstanding as John Paul II’s spokesman and did a masterly job handling the pope’s last days, funeral and sede vacante.

His brilliance made highlighted the bumblings of his successor, Federico Lombardi — it was like Obama being succeeded by Donald!

I, as you can see from what I wrote in my “The Next Pope 2011” a great fan of Dr. Navarro-Valls.

This is what I said about Lombardi in my last pope book — in September 2015.

This, if it is indeed true, will be quite momentous. Lombardi has been running the Holy See Press Office for nearly a decade — not always with alacrity and grace. His ‘howlers’ drove me nuts. It really will be a case of GROBR — Good Riddance of Bad Rubbish. But I won’t believe it until I actually see a Press Release stating that he has left. Lombardi at times made Niccolò Machiavelli look like he was Pope John XXIII! I have been convinced that Lombardi has ‘compromising’ photographs of the popes. To I that is the ONLY explanation why he has not been kicked way across the Tiber.
