Most people who pay attention to the mess that is the Church today are aware of the various stories involving the Order of Malta from the past 3 years or so. Late last week WikiLeaks released some confidential documents that shed some light into this mess.
Of interest to us is that there was clear communication between Cardinal Burke and Pope Francis regarding allegations of promotion of heterodox and immoral ideas by the Order of Malta, including insinuations of Freemasonry against the order itself. Now, this is of course interesting because some of they key players in the story who promote heterodoxy ended up getting promotions while Burke was himself slowly turned into persona non grata in the Church.
