pope phone call

Both the call and the caller must have been of the utmost importance, causing an unprecedented event in the history of the Church.

Newsroom (11/08/2021 16:51 PM, Gaudium Press) The Catholic world is still wondering. The Pope was answering his cell phone this morning during the General Audience. Both the call and the caller must have been of the utmost importance, causing an unprecedented event in the history of the Church. Indeed, such as the interruption of one of the regular addresses of the Roman Pontiff, the General Audience.

Telephoto lenses present at the event focused their endless searching just at the very moment when a Vatican official passes the cell to the Pontiff and the screen comes into view. On display, it reads “H.E. Mons…”

The clues, however, do not stop there. Media outlets confirmed that the Holy Father was talking to someone from the Secretariat of State. Therefore, it seems pretty easy to conclude that the Pontiff spoke with Msgr. Edgar Peña Parra, substitute of the Secretariat of State. He seems to be, it seems, someone who has direct access to Francis, anywhere, anytime.

Finally, we may conclude that the importance of the topic must have been quite critical. It could not be postponed for later, nor tomorrow.

At this point, our journalistic curiosity and indiscretion have already gone beyond the limit in matters that are only intended to be pious digressions.
In any case, this piece aims at reinforcing a fact: the clocks of the world, even cell phones, are tuned to the watch of the man who has the highest office in the world, the successor of the Apostle Petr.

Msgr. Peña Parra

Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra is a Venezuelan Archbishop who has been a substitute for the Vatican Secretariat of State since August 2018.

He entered the diplomatic service of the Holy See in 1993, and has been Apostolic Nuncio to Pakistan, between 2011 and 2015, and also to Mozambique from 2015 to 2018.
