Vatican Orders Matthew Festing Not to Travel to Rome for Order of Malta Election

Some in the Order say move is designed to keep Fra’ Festing from having any influence in the election of a new Grand Master.

As I mentioned in a previous post on this topic, you should wait for the final shoe to fall.  It has. Festing is formally asked to not attend the election in Rome of a successor for the silly and ambiguous reason that it might bring back hurt feelings.  Is the Order a bunch of wimps?  I don’t think so.  The fact is that Festing could be re-elected if allow to attend…they don’t want that to happen.

I say let him attend.  If he’s not re-elected then you know there won’t be complaints later.  Even Gamaliel was smart enough to know this.
