New claims about mismanagement of the Catholic Church's finances and vitriolic attacks on Pope Francis from hard-line traditionalists offer a keyhole glimpse of infighting simmering behind closed doors at the Vatican, experts say.This relates to a 33-year-old mystery over the disappearance of the Emanuela Orlandi, the 15-year-old daughter of a Vatican employee.Interpretations of the recent spate of intrigue vary but the one thing they all agree on is that Francis is under fire.It does, however, echo more influential criticism of Francis' position on the divorce-communion issue outlined in his 2016 publication on the family, "Amoris Laetitia" (The Joy of Love).Francis has yet to respond but the cardinals, two of whom have since died, have not acted on a threat to elevate their complaint to a formal "fraternal correction".
