Can always rely on Ph0tog for the interesting questions...

I think the Vatican may have even had a deal with Irons about the Blade. I mean if any one can broker a deal with the Vatican, it would be KI! :-)

Since the Blade was 'stolen' out of the archives of the Vatican, perhaps the Church wanted to see what would be done with it and for what purpose so they did not try to retrieve it right away.

Also, it was never determined that the Vatican was actually trying to retrieve, since Father Del Toro was not really "working" for the Church but other sinster forces that perhaps wanted the Blade for it's own endgame.

I believe it was determined that there are different weilder bloodlines...not all related to one another. As EB said, "we are related but not in the way that you think". So I think that there are different "possibilities" of certain women in those bloodlines to become the Weilder but she has to be "tested" and proven worthy to wear it.

*wondering if any of this rambling actually answered Ph0tog's inquiries...*
