The super editor-in-chief of the Pope

In hindsight, you might think, Andrea Tornielli had recommended in the last five and a half years all the time for his new task. With each dedicated line that he wrote with each article. Read now how to pleas for a man who shouldn't need any special intercession of the Pope. But the Thesis with the recommendation is, of course, daring.

The Journalist from Venice, (54), soft voice, and top of the spring, was one of the most famous of the "Vaticanisti" in the country. The Italians call those reporters of the Vatican. You travel with, if the Pope out of town, you know all the power intrigues of the Church, can quote from the Stand of old encyclicals. Tornielli did this recently for "La Stampa" and as the coordinator of the "Vatican Insider", an online newspaper in five languages. Pro-Bergoglio, also in Chinese.

Now, Pope Francis has appointed Tornielli to the Director of media of the Vatican. To Super Editor-In-Chief. This is a remarkable page in exchange for a professional journalist. Tornielli is Catholic, but not a Clergyman: He is married, has three children. He has also studied theology, but ancient Greek. Now, he will be responsible for the journalistic line of Vatican Radio, the newspaper "Osservatore Romano", the broadcaster Centro Vatican television center Vatican's publisher, Libreria Editrice Vaticana, and the Website "Vatican News".

"There is a battle for Power runs."Andrea Tornielli

But what, a journalistic line in a absolute monarchy means? Basically, it should go about, to carry the word of "Papa Francesco", as Tornielli announced to him, in the world. "In times of rapid Slogans and social media," he says, but, "it is important to put the reality back into the centre and to analyze objectively." The do not all seem to. Tornielli thought, especially to the many, the Holy father is not so well-minded bloggers that have surfaced in the past few years. Including the nostalgic, the desire of Benedict XVI and the traditionalists and super-conservative with direct wire to these circles within the Roman Curia. Anti-Bergoglio, always.

Tornielli wrote as a Vatican against them, now he has the whole defense apparatus in the Hand. "There is a battle for Power runs," he said recently. And because of this power struggle runs parallel to the abuse scandals, is not to Communicate from the Vatican just so easy. Torniellis predecessor in the media, the Secretariat, the Italian priest, Dario Edoardo Viganò, had to shoot in this harsh climate of a silly thing fascinating: He manipulated a letter from the Emeritus Pope to the President so that the Letter as an advert for Francis was. A critical paragraph from this he had cleaned up easy with Photoshop. Viganò was gone quickly.

something like this should not happen to Tornielli, he is already long in the business. Dozens of books he has written. In "Il Giorno del Giudizio", such as: the day of judgment, his latest work, he complains the Prosecutor of "Papa Francesco", the Schemers, the urge the Pope to resign.
