  Conspiracy in the VaticanEnrique de Vicente (article srcinally appeared in no. 7 Year / Zero) in the first week of 1991, a news report from Italy jumped to the tickers of the world: Pope John Paul I was not found dead in bed by his secretary but his body was discovered by Sister Vicenza, seated in his office with a secret document from the Secretary of State on the table and the new will drawn up by him in the Vatican, he disappeared. The importance of such claims is that were made by the brother and dearest niece of the late pontiff to an Italian journalist. So far, they had kept secret the facts, which contradict the Vatican's official statement on the circumstances in which there was the mysterious death because they had been convinced that what happened was due to an inscrutable Providence 'and' did not appear well they knew that a nun came into his room. An old woman who has continued to suspect the information published on this subject, apparently, the news wasonly surprising that these relatives of the Pope came to join the massive chorus claiming it shed light on the confusing circumstances that occurred unexpecteddeath. Just one month after death, the Spanish press announced the imminent presentation in Rome of the Pope has been murdered (Operation Dove), a novel in which journalists Jesus Ramon Eduardo Pena and Mario Zottola argue that the death of Pope Luciani obeyed a purely economic movement , because the Vatican's financial empire is one of the most powerful in the world and there are powerful reasons to try to eliminate the leader of this fortune. However, earlier that same month, the traditionalist Roman followers of Archbishop Lefebvre and advanced the possibility that John Paul I was assassinated by the Freemasons infiltrated the highest levels Vatican, which blame to promote the reformist tendencies inpost-conciliar the Church, which supposedly would oppose the Pope. Some right-wing magazines were accused of being affiliated with the Masons to Secretary of State of the Holy See, Cardinal Villot, the president of the Congregation for Bishops, Cardinal Baggio, the Vatican banker, Archbishop Marcinkus and other prelates. In 1980, Bruce Marshali fantasizes about the subject in his novel A murderer to Juan Pablo /?, In which the Pope Luciani is poisoned by the fictional society of the new apostles, all twelve members oppose changes propelled by the Council Vatican II and support as pontiff to Cardinal Siri. Three years later in Thereal death of John Paul I, Jean-Jacques Thierry hypothesizes that Paul VI Villotreplaced by a doublet and planned the death of his successor when he discoveredthe Masonic infiltration in the areas Vatican, the unusual theory twice that still hold quite a few ultra-conservatives. On a more serious and better documented, 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 close relations with mobsters, financiers and leaders of the lodge P-2, concealingunder pseudonyms very evidentcharacters at this stage were already well known. And he describes the Pope as aliberal reformer committed to eradicate corruption from the dome of the Church,presenting Villot Marcinkus and as instigators of the crime, carried out by a professional murderer with a poisoned needle, to avoid his imminent dismissal. That same year, the makers of bestselling G. Thomas and M. Morgan-Whitts Pontiff published a highly documented research on the lives of the last three popes and the critical circumstances in which they develop their pontificates, which suggest that the hypothesis of murder was a rumor ably promoted by the Soviet KGB to discredit 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 digitalis, to prevent the changes brought by the Pope to end corruption, is advocatedin 1984 by David Yallop in his book In God's name, the result of three years ofintensive research that included the illegal collaboration of some members of the Vatican curia. Yallop shows that the Vatican covered up the circumstances in which death occurred and provides sufficient evidence necessary to consider opening a formal investigation. His book caused a scandal.€The situation was really serious. To the point of carrying an ultraconservative like Jean Parvulesco esoteric to accept the possibility that John Paul I was executed to prevent the churchwould lead to a deviation theologically progressive and Third (referring to rev  olutionary and anarchist dream that Yallop attributed to Pope Luciani), and hold a time, taking advantage of these circumstances, Yallop and 'their partnership-faceless intend to present the Vatican become the most powerful criminal inthe world. The President of the Pontifical Commission for Social CommunicationsYallop reacted to the book referring to the Vatican embassy and some EpiscopalConferences a few pages, prepared by Bishop Nicolini, in which countered the assumption that the lamented John Paul I intended revolutionize the Vatican hierarchy, explaining that an environment conducive to imagine conspiracies is impossible 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 thebody of the Pontiff. Nevertheless, a survey published in 1987 showed that 30 percent of Italians were convinced that the Pope of the smile was killed. A thief in the night Conscious of the need for more compelling arguments, the Vatican authorities encouraged to conduct an impartial investigation into the case to the journalist John Cornwell. They gave him some unprecedented facilities that allowed him to interview the major players in the story were still alive, not to impose any conditions; all-clear, with the hope that come to light evidence of the falsity of all conspiracy theories for over a decade I have been a source of discomfort for the Roman Catholic Church. In Like a thief in the night, we explainedthat evidence began to take me to a conclusion that seems more shameful and moretragic than any of the conspiracies proposals so far: He despised by his clumsygait, listless appearance , their innocent speeches, his simple language and imitated the whistling tone of his voice. They referred to him condescendingly, with diminutives. There were endlessstories about his behavior and his blunders ... It was left to die by not feel qualified to be Pope ... He died alone in the center of the largest Christian community in the world, negligence and lack of love, ridiculed and despised by theinstitution that existed to keep ... What is worse, Cornwell presents himself assomeone sometimes little more than delusional and believes that his gentleness, his distrust, their concerns about issues purely pastoral and pious, but not coupled to a church that was facing challenges worldly of the eighties and nineties. In similar tune, to accept the lesser evil, the historian Ricardo de la Cierva 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 the list of colleagues infiltrated the church and tells summit that will attack the same week ... but eventually dies of natural causes, before they try to assassinate him. Since this is a historical novel, there is no way to discern the truth of her fiction. This book, like its predecessor, intended to reassure more than a few consciences tormented by the possibility of such a crime, while increasing the confusion surrounding the issue. Let there be justice! And in those circumstances was the controversy when, in early 1991, statements from relatives of John Paul I came to add fuel to the boiler suspicions. As if God or the devil, beengaged in the Vatican's dirty laundry to continue to be news, or to create confusion concerning the issue at hand, a week after the press announced the next occurrence of an explosive book. The American Jesuit Robert Graham, stated in thesame the results of its extensive research on the plots of espionage-own and others-that have been woven around the secrets of the Vatican, and which has involved 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 book that I know of in which a priest supports the thesis of the murder: will be asked account. In the opinion of its author, Spanish Jesus Lopez Saez, a graduatein theology, philosophy and psychology, this book was necessary,€and that of Cornwell not only did not please the Vatican but surpasses even the distortion thathad 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 solved, not concealing or suppressing the issue, but trying to understand hearts. There is much evidence that would justify an investigation in any rule of law. This is not attacking the Church, on the contrary, it stands for. The key is evangelical 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 therehas been more business? In the Vatican market in the old temple denounced by Jesus? Not too many deaths that have accompanied these businesses? Have you everstolen from the Church and the world the cause of death of John Paul I? ... Failure to respond adequately to these questions, the new evangelization will be discredited as an old comedy, unfortunate and sterile. As the Lord in the Gospel ofLuke: It will be held accountable. They killed my father has ignored the recommendations prudent not to publish his book, knowing that an article on the samesubject, published in the journalNew religious life, cost cease to be responsible for adult catechesis in the National Secretariat. Coincidentally, that article hit the streets on October 4, 1984, anniversary of the Pope's funeral, the day-chance-in all churches of the world read a psalm in the Christian Community which is now responsible were especially associated with the death of John Paul I: They handed over the body of yourservants as food to the birds of heaven, the flesh of your friends with the beasts of the earth ... Is known among the nations. Talking to him, it is clear that professes an admiration and love for the figure of John Paul I. When the Episcopal Commission explained that, even if true, it should be said, adding that it is as if your father was a criminal, should be on family, he replied: That isnot the case and the case is that they have killed my father and I have nothingto silence him. Coincidentally, the father of Jesús López was born the same day the Pope Luciani: the October 17, 1912 ... If anything is to be accused of excessive zeal and love, and seem to be sufficient for these reasons that the hierarchy can condemn their audacity, but, on the contrary, to excuse its potential excesses. As he explains, Jesus Lopez visited in 1989, Pia, Luciani's niece along with her father Eduardo has starred in recent statements, and the latter's wife, Antonia, who ended up confessing: We do not know why he died, and Sometimes we have strange thoughts. They then handed a draft copy of his book, and in December1990, sent the printed book. It is curious that, after twelve years of silence,especially now be encouraged to express their doubts, albeit timidly. Could there was this Spanish priest catalyst of this reaction? Although not so, there is too much synchronicity between them to ignore facts which are significant. But let us see what are the facts underlying the controversy. Why was no autopsy? On September 29, 1978, the Vatican officially informed that, around 5:30 that morning, 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 the day before because of an acute myocardial infarction. The accumulated evidence 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 insistent calls. According to several witnesses, sat in bed with the lights on, glasses on, and some papers in his hands. The nun then ran to wake the secretary JohnMagee, who confirmed the death and called the cardinal Villot. Accompanied by the doctor, the latter examined the body and called the embalmers. The problem isthat the statements which they subsequently did not match those made by other witnesses. Given the warm temperatures that have kept the body, which was also corroborated by Sister Vincenza and the Secretary Lorenzi, embalmers believe thatthe death should have occurred between 4 and 5, and not the 11 that were confirmed by Noah Bishop. Despite protests from some church,€Cardinal Oddi said that theSacred College of Cardinals would not even consider opening an investigation into the death, nor accept any control by anyone. But then he learned that the Cardinals calledknow the precise circumstances in which that occurred, before the questions being posed by the public, the absence of a medical journal and the refusal of the Holy See to perform the autopsy on the body to eliminate any doubt. The problem is that without an autopsy, it is clinically impossible to determine that a deathwas caused by acute myocardial infarction and instantaneous and that the typical 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 death. Moreover, the sober style of life of the Pope and low blood pressure did notsuspect such an outcome, nor does it correspond to a brain hemorrhage or pulmonary embolism, the other possibilities that have been cited Vatican sources. To make matters worse, doctors Buzonetti and Fontana, who signed the death certificate, said they had not provided medical services never Luciani, so they did not know anything about the state of his health or on the medicines they take, nor bothered ask those who might know. His death was so unexpected that Dr. Da Ros, personal physician of John Paul I, who had met the previous day with very good health, she could not believe. A slab of silence The Secretary of State imposed a vow of silence to Sister Vincenza, to prevent him from telling what he had seen, but finally broke it, because, in his opinion, the world must know the truth about the death of this pope, whom she greatly admired. As we said Father Lopez Saez, it seems that the Vatican does not want to know what the pope died, or do not want to know, and the official version has distorted the situation, giving concealment and repression of any further investigation into this enigma. According to one of the specialists that have been required to study the circumstancesin the deaths, Dr. Cabrera, it could respond better to a death caused by substance depressant and occurred in deep sleep. Moreover, pinkish tone that still had his face at noon on 29 appears in some poison, for example, carbon monoxideand cyanide. It is striking, continues the Spanish priest, the rush to anointthe 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 passed since the death, as happened after the death of Paul VI. Contrary to what has been said, the rules of the Holy See or prohibit or order the autopsy of the pontiffs, and through it, which obstinately rejected Villot could have determinedwhether there were acute or detected heavy metal poison, but it would severelyhampered after the embalming. Even in 1989 the inhabitants of Luciani's hometownformed a committee to request an autopsy that was done that despite the years still could clear some doubts. However, even though he has said the body was embalmed without extracting blood or guts, Lorenzi ensures that the embalmers' retired parts of the body, possibly the viscera. In that case, could be some kind of autopsy. If so, why do not you say? Gennari's father, says that autopsy was done, confirming that the concerns and stress led inadvertently to the pope to take a vasodilator, contraindicated for low voltage. But in this case, given that Luciani was very careful with their medications and that these were controlled bythe nurse Sister Vincenza,there is the possibility of a criminal change of medicines. As for reading thatis between his hands when he died, have circulated several versions, but the Vatican has finalized what it was, incomprehensibly. According to Germano Pattaro,Pope's theological adviser, were some notes on the conversation of two hours that the pope held talks the previous evening with Secretary of State Villot. To understand the reasons why someone might be interested in ending the life of JohnPaul I, it is necessary to briefly recall a number of shady maneuvers that surfaced years later, which directly affect Vatican finances and reached Luciani partially known. The Vatican Bank washes whiter As is apparent from the investigations conducted by Yallop, Gurwin, Sisti, Modolo, Di Fonzo, Piazzesi, Bonsanti,€Domenech and Rupert Cornweil, the mafia used italonorteamericana Vatican financial institutions to launder dirty money from drug trafficking and other criminal activities. Such an operation was conceived by Michelle Sindona, who began his career recycling the fortunes of the Gambino mobsters known New Yorkers, through a holding company. Slowly, is forging a true financial empire of international dimensions. After handing the Cardinal Montini, the money needed for the constructionof a nursing home, and really was donated by the CIA and the Mafia, becomes hisfriend and financial adviser. Via who later became Pope Paul VI, he meets Massimo Spada, director of the Vatican Bank. Through the Continental Bank of Illinois, the fourth, part of whose shares have been acquired by Sindona, Vatican largeinvestments will be channeled along the American continent. Sindona got into a close friendship with Licio Gelli, a powerful textile businessman who has fought
