She came to me in the evening, and we had to talk. It is late. When he was leaving the nuns who were helping me at home they told me: ‘The lady is afraid to go to the hotel because there is covid.

I have only been given to the rank of Holy Father.” The Pope called me – and he continued -: ‘Your Excellency, I ask you to call Dr.
Mellon and told him that he no longer had the Holy Father’s trust and that he had to resign. I called Mellon himself in the morning and informed him of the Pope’s decision, the reasons were those that were written in the statement of September 24, 2017 after Mellon’s statements to the press. In short, Mellon, “beyond his powers, unlawfully hired an outside company to carry out investigative activities in the private lives of supporters of the Holy See.” I strongly repeat that I had no part in the Holy Father’s decision.”
