Monsignor Nunzio Scaranoc has been arrested in connection with an inquiry into a Vatican bank scandal over allegations of corruption and fraud.
Monsignor Nunzio Scaranoc was a great follower of the Pope, as long as the donations kept flowing into the Vatican Bank.

Monsignor Nunzio Scarano works in the Vatican's financial administration. A secret service agent and a financial broker have also been arrested.
They are suspected of trying to move 20m euros (£17m) illegally into Italy. Pope Francis ordered an unprecedented internal investigation into the bank's affairs in the wake of recent scandals.
Monsignor Scarano has been under investigation by Italian police for a series of suspicious transactions involving the recycling through the Vatican bank of a series of cheques described as church donations.
Officially known as the Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), the bank is one of the world's most secretive. It has 114 employees and $7.1bn (£4.6bn; 5.4bn euros) of assets.
Pope Francis has given the commission carte blanche, bypassing normal secrecy rules, to try to get to the bottom of scandals which have plagued the bank for decades.
Traditionally, the Vatican Bank has refused to co-operate with Italian authorities investigating financial crime on the grounds of the sovereign independence of the Vatican city state, the BBC's David Willey reports from Rome.

My comment:
Martin Luther was convinced that the corruption in the German Church was limited to the level of Bishops and cardinals, and wrote to Pope Leo X.  Luther wrote to the Pope and warned him, putting his hope in the Papacy being able to root out the corruption.
Luther got the shook of his life, when the Pope ordered him to be arrested. The "Holy Father" wanted the whistleblower to be put for trial.
In a similar way, the World do as Luther did. Putting their trust in the Papacy.  Most of the global media publish the propaganda material released from the Vatican.
The Pope is presented as a victim of unfaithful servants of the Papacy.  We are told the Pope will act boldly, and get the criminals persecuted and punished.
It must be possible to have two thoughts in the head simultaneously.  The present Pope has also been a priest, bishop and a cardinal. A puppet in the same criminal priesthood, that elevated him to the seat of power.
It is laughable that a Catholic Bishop, has never been aware of the whitewashing of mafia money taking place in the Vatican Bank. But is difficult to refuse a 20 million Euro "donation". The priests needs to pay the bills, and close their eyes. Profit from drug deals or even arms sales to terrorists, no issue. As long as the business of the Papacy goes on.
Such is the nature of evil.
What is wrong with the papacy?
First: When you take the name "Holy Father" you equal your self with God the Father.  This is pure blasphemy, since Jesus the Messiah addressed His Father in Heaven as "Holy Father".
 John 17:11
I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.
Second: The Pope claims to be infallible in matters of interpretation of scriptures. No man, no flesh is infallible. Only God.
‘As for God, his way is perfect: the Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
Third: The Pope claim to be the "Vicarius Iesu Christi", or the "Vicar of Christ". The very replacement of the Messiah on Earth.  The only replacement for Jesus on Earth, is the Holy Spirit. The claim of the Papacy is sin and blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, a sin that will never be forgiven.
John 15:26
‘When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father – the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father – he will testify about me.
John 16:7
But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.’
In conclusion: The Vatican priesthood is nothing but a priesthood of Satan, deceiving them selves, and all who still listen to them, 500 years after the Reformation.
