A MALTESE “visionary” interrupted the Pope’s general audience last week.
Angelik Caruana and another Maltese man were stopped by Vatican security guards after they appeared to be jumping over the security barriers.
The men were questioned by the guards and then allowed to remain. Fr Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, later clarified that the two men were good people who were no threat to the Pope.
He said: “There were two people who raised their voice and wanted to give a letter to the Pope containing devotional messages. That’s all.” The Jesuit spokesman added: “People close to the barriers at times get on the chair so they appear taller but this doesn’t mean they want to jump over.” Mr Caruana claims to receive messages from the Virgin Mary.
