Gabriel writes: "Good morning! The words of the Pope "the truth is the truth and we must not hide it pushed me to tell these facts for which I am very worried for several months. As you know, Infovaticana has reported and celebrated on numerous occasions the words of Pope Francis asking for "a poor Church for the poor", and fighting clericalism ".

But, Gabriel notes, all this must not yet have penetrated all levels of the Curia. In short: "The Vatican Secretariat of State a few months ago sent Infovaticana the request to renounce our web domain, claiming that it holds exclusive property rights over the name of the physical center of the Catholic world. Imagine the reaction of the public if the mayor of New York made a similar request to the New York Times, or if the Italian Republic did it to the newspaper La Repubblica ".

Infovaticana, notes Gabriel, "is small and insignificant enough to be surprised to have drawn the attention of a Secretariat of State that should have enough to do to govern the Church".

According to Gabriel, the problem is that the Spanish Episcopal Conference does not like what we say; "So its president, Cardinal Blázquez, presents a complaint against us at the Apostolic Nunciature, after some bishops went to cry because this portal is not limited, as others do, to talk about sparrows and flowers and to say how everything is nice, but informs on what really happens, including when the interested parties would prefer that you do not know ".

The thing that perhaps most impressed the Spanish colleagues is that the Secretariat of State, "thinking perhaps of making a poor Church and for the poor", does not address a modest legal office, or an office specializing in Church matters, but to the most powerful legal office in the world, the multinational giant Baker & McKenzie that last August asked Infovaticana to transfer its domain ( ) within a week to the Vatican Secretariat of State, threatening a trial very expensive in case of default.
