Andrea Tornielli heavily attacks on Vatican Insider, a mouthpiece of Pope Francis, the Catholic association Heralds of the Gospel, presumably as a justification of an imminent crackdown of Francis against the group.
Tornielli claims that the Heralds cultivate a «secrete cult» to a Trinity made up by the founder of the Brazilian Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), Plinio Correa de Oliveira (+1995), his mother Donna Lucilia, and the founder of the Heralds, Father João Scognamiglio Clá Días (77).
He publishes a long video showing Father Clá, visibly in poor health, not able to use his right hand, surrounded by a group of priests while one of them, standing next to Clá, reads from a protocol of an exorcism, a dialog between a priest and a demon. Tornielli laments that this protocol is read "without objections" of those present, but from the video there is no indication that Clà agrees with the demon.
At a point the demon says, "The Vatican? It is mine, mine! [The Pope] has done all I wanted, he is a fool!" Or, "He obeys me in everything." "He serves me." Tornielli tries hard to demonize the relaxed reaction of those present. The demon then says that "the next pope will be good", identifying Cardinal Franc Rodé (82) as Francis' successor.
Tornielli is a personal friend of Pope Francis, who often receives him. Francis' liberal views are in stark contrast with the Catholic beliefs of the Heralds of the Gospel.
