Strokes and Caresses: Francis Celebrated Mass Of Lord’s Supper ... With Cardinal Becciu

Francis celebrated the April 1 Mass of the Lord’s Supper at the private apartment of Cardinal Becciu, VaticanNews.va reports.

In September 2020, Francis publicly humiliated Becciu when he fired him without evidence and without a trial. Recently, Francis started calling Becciu, and now Becciu is likely going to be rehabilitated.

The Eucharist took place in the Cardinal's private chapel and was attended by the sisters who care for Becciu, and by some members of the Focolare movement to which Becciu belongs.

The visit carried enormous symbolic weight and could suggest Francis may have come to realize an error in his handling of the Becciu dossier.
