Default Pope Francis and his papacy to be entrusted to Our Lady of Fatima 13th May

The May edition of "The Curate's Diary" reports that Pope Francis has asked
Cardinal Policarpo, Archbishop of Lisbonto, to entrust Pope Francis and his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima.

"So on May 13th Cardinal Policarpo will lead a special act of entrustment in Fatima ...."

Let us join our prayers and masses on that day to that same intention.
May 13th is Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.

Once again our new pope is setting out pointers for the direction of his papacy.
This is a beautiful intention.
What do others feel it is saying?

If the reports on a cabal of powerful archbishops in the Vatican, are to be believed, - who are preparing their own agenda for the church with little regard for papal directives, then Pope Francis has just got the most powerful ally on his team, to aide in confronting them!

I don't believe that kind of conspiracy theory about the Vatican.

Of course, Cardinals and Bishops are sinners, and so there are problems within the Curia and in various dioceses. But there is no cabal plotting against the Pope.

This assertion in the article is false: "Lifting the excommunications meant the four bishops were once again full members of the 1.2-billion member Church...."

Pope Benedict lifted the juridical excommunication (ferendae sententiae), but the automatic excommunication (latae sententiae) for heresy and schism remains in effect, until and unless they repent. The holy Pontiff wanted to open the way for their return to the Church. But they refuse to return. They insist that Vatican II and all the Popes since that time are in grave error. They think that they are the only ones who have retained the true faith.
