Even Parolin Doubts Francis’ Conspiracy Theory

His own Secretary of State, Cardinal Piero Parolin, contradicted Francis who told Jesuits in Bratislava that “they were preparing the conclave” when he was in hospital.

“Honestly, I didn't notice that there was this pre-conclave atmosphere,” Parolin said according to on September 22 in Rome, but, in order so save Francis face, added that “the Pope probably has information that I do not have” – which is unlikely.

Thus, only two options are left: Either Francis invented this claim to present himself as a victim, or some schemer served him with this story to smear rivals - and Francis was only too eager to believe it because he would have done the same.
