I like this, some German Catholics have started a campaign in the light of Vatileaks of sending the Pope a postcard, just saying, “We are with you!”
It was rumoured that under the previous Secretary of State certain low ranking Monsignori on the various language desks in the postal department of the Holy See would simply bin or fail to forward any unfavourable correspondence sent either to the Pope or Vatican department. It gave enormous power of control to men who were really filing-clerks.
It meant if you complained about a Nuncio, for example, or made a recommendation about who would be an effective bishop and it wasn’t to the opener of the letter’s taste, it never got through.
What did I miss ???
