“In my book, I explain how the Vatican maneuvered so that Maradiaga would not be officially implicated as Pineda’s concealer; that way he could be kept in the “council of cardinals.” That was a grotesque action and a mockery of honesty because they gave him impunity.
The Pope has acted against cover-ups on very few occasions, only when the external pressure is very strong, as happened in Chile. In contrast, in Honduras, the cardinal has the media in his favor, and they do not report any of the denunciations against him. As for the few media that denounce, the cardinal calls them slanderers, and the fanatics and naive believe him in spite of so much evidence, although, little by little, they are becoming convinced of the truth.
I am just a widow to whom neither Maradiaga nor Francis have given importance because they do not practice the Gospel as it should be. It seems that the teachings of Christ have gone out of fashion and the devil reigns. The reasons for this terrible situation are revealed in my book, and it’s something frightening.”
PF “This brings us to a historical fact of Francis: Never before in the history of Catholicism has a healthy pope repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist and meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of politicians. To put this in perspective, imagine if Pope John Paul II while he was still healthy had repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist, but meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of Mikhail Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan or a Muslim politician.” http://catholicmonitor.blogspot.com/
“Cardinal Roger Mahony, the former head of the archdiocese, whom many believe should be in prison for his cover-up of predator priests, still exercises influence in Los Angeles.
In March, Mahony was a speaking guest at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress (LA REC).
In January 2013, Abp. Gomez removed Cdl. Mahony from administrative and active duties. But three months later, after Pope Francis was elected, Mahony was immediately declared to be “in good standing” and allowed to remain in ministry. “
