Francis has accepted the resignation of Msgr. Dario Viganò as Prefect of the Secretariat for Communications.
He has been replaced by Msgr. Lucio Adrian Ruiz, former head of the Vatican Internet Service.
This comes after Viganó published and manipulated a letter he had received as an answer from Benedict XVI.
The true reasons for Viganó's resignation remain however unclear as in the Vatican incompetence has never been a reason to dismiss people who bow in front of their superiors.
Fr. Z's Blog: Francis wants Viganò around so he can still “give his human and professional contribution to the new Prefect”.
