This is patently, egregiously WRONG!
Lombardi has done it again as he repeatedly did, as you can see below,
to my intense ire, during the 2013 sede vacante.
There are currently ONLY 10 ‘available’ slots.
We, right this minute, have 110 living cardinal electors.
Only 120 can participate in a conclave.
The ’12’ claimed is taking into account Justin Francis Rigali
turning 80 on April 19, 2015.
That is 2 months and 5 days after the consistory.
Now it is possible that Lombardi plans to get rid of two cardinal electors.
But, that has yet to happen. So he shouldn’t speak beforehand.
Refer to the images below. They are screen shots of blog posts from my ‘Popes and Papacy’ blog. Each calls out Lombardi for incompetence or deceit. Click on each image to access the original post. While you are at my ‘Popes and Papacy’ blog do a search on ‘Lombardi’. You will see we have a history.
Lombardi is both inept and deceitful. That is a dangerous combination, especially given that he also is under the illusion that he is God’s spokesperson as opposed to the pope’s. I won’t ask as to how he got the job or more significantly manages to keep it. I have a theory. He must have some very incriminating evidence about John Paul II or Benedict XVI. If not there is absolutely no rationale as to why he has this job. His faux pas are legendary. Yes, at one point Benedict brought in an ex-Fox News reporter to try and keep Lombardi in check. Didn’t work. This really bugs me. The Vatican should not LIE. Plain and simple. You should not lie.
