UPDATE 8 Nov:
But wait. There’s more.
Over a Church Militant, Michael is reporting that an Italian author, Aldo Maria Valli, has published a book about whistleblower Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò. However, the publishing company has been pressured to restrict future editions.
Recently Church Militant learned that Fede & Cultura, the publishing house for Valli’s Il Caso Viganò, was compelled to restrict further editions of the book. It was the first time Valli had worked with Fede & Cultura, whom he called “courageous” for their publishing choices. Fede & Cultura confirmed with Church Militant that they were put under “irresistible pressure from within the Church not to publish anything else that would depict the Pope in a bad light.” Perhaps Pope Francis’ next surprise motu proprio will announce the reform of the Index librorum prohibitorum (the “List of Prohibited Books”).
What’s amusing about this is how this will backfire for anyone in the magic circle around Francis who wants this book stomped out. They have not a single clue. They create a market for the book. Next, they seem not to realize that, in an age of e-readers and the internet books don’t have to be printed.
You can order the Italian KINDLE edition NOW and have it either on your e-reader or on your computer’s screen in mere seconds.
Heck, you might get it anyway, even if you don’t read Italian just to let them (Curia and Publisher) know what’s what.

Everyone knows that the plural of anecdote is “data”.
Something seems to be up.
First, Italian Vaticanista Marco Tosatti says that Francis, through the US Nuncio, is telling bishops not to invite Card. Burke to their dioceses, and if they can’t prevent his presence, not to attend the event. HERE
Another story was circulating that the Holy See had forbidden the great Bp. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary in Astana, to travel. It seems, however, that they have only told him not to be outside of his diocese – except for necessary meetings of conferences, etc. – for more than the designated 30 days (can. 395 §2). HERE
The last thing they want is the circulation of certain ideas.
George Orwell wrote that some pigs are more equal than others.
It would be interesting to start a Bishop Watch effort. I wonder how many days bishops such as Card. Maradiaga or Cupich are outside their dioceses.
