Pope Francis is again in the eye of the storm.
A new scandal is enveloping the Vatican.
And it was discovered in the most shocking fashion you can imagine.
One of Pope Francis’ top supporters was arrested by the Vatican police.
Monsignor Luigi Capozzi was arrested while in the middle of a cocaine-fueled homosexual orgy in an apartment building right next to St. Peter’s Basilica.
LifeSite News reports:
A high-ranking Vatican monsignor who is a secretary to one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators was arrested by Vatican police after they caught him hosting a cocaine-fueled homosexual orgy in a building right next to St. Peter’s Basilica.
Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, 49, was caught by Vatican gendarmerie in a raid some two months ago that took place in the former Palace of the Holy Office.
While the top Vatican officials have been mute about the raid, Italian media broke the story last week after receiving inside information.
Vatican police allegedly caught the monsignor, whom Italian media called an “ardent supporter of Pope Francis,” after tenants in the building complained repeatedly about constant comings and goings of visitors to the building during all hours of the night. The building is currently being used by various high-ranking churchmen, including prefects, presidents, and secretaries to the Roman Curia.
Capozzi, who on his LinkedIn page calls himself an “expert in canon law and dogmatic theology,” managed to evade suspicion from Italian police by using a BMW luxury car with license plates of the Holy See, which made him practically immune to stops and searches. This privilege, usually reserved for high-ranking prelates, allowed the monsignor to transport cocaine for his frequent homosexual orgies without being stopped by the Italian police.
Capozzi was appointed to the position of bishop on the recommendation of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, who wrote in defense of Pope Francis’ controversial decision to allow divorced and remarried Catholics, as well as those living in sin, to receive Communion.

Capozzi’s arrest comes on the verge of him being appointed a bishop on the recommendation of his superior, Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, the Vatican’s top canonical official.
Coccopalmerio, President of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts, is one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators and ardent supporters.
Earlier this year, the Vatican’s own publishing house released a book by the Cardinal with much fanfare that defended Francis’s 2016 Exhortation Amoris Laetitia as allowing civilly-divorced-and-remarried Catholics living in adultery, as well as unmarried cohabiting Catholics living in fornication, to receive Holy Communion. Coccopalmerio maintained that the book was his own personal reflection on the matter and carried no legislative weight.
This arrest adds to the left-wing Pope’s headaches.
He was forced to reverse course after the Vatican released a statement that supported the European Court’s decision to allow doctors to terminate the life support that was sustaining five- year-old Charlie Gard, rather than allow his parents to take him to the United States for an experimental treatment.
Pope Francis has been a controversial figure since the very day he ascended to the Papacy.
This ugly situation will only add to the questions about his leadership.
