The Testimony

Letter confirms Vatican officials knew of McCarrick allegations in 2000

S18 HR “So the Vatican has officially known for 18 yearsabout Cardinal McCarrick’s molesting seminarians. We now have proof. Here’s the image:”

“The U.S. bishops’ official news service, Catholic News Service (CNS) also says the 12-year-old letter “confirms elements” of the explosive 11-page testimony of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò.

Viganò’s principal allegation is that Pope Francis and a number of high-ranking prelates covered up McCarrick’s serial sexual abuse of seminarians.”

Right on time. I thought there was no Hell. I guess if there is Satan, then Hell is in play, again.

“Despite the pope’s frequent calls for transparency and accountability for those responsible for committing or covering up sex abuse, he seemed to suggest Tuesday that the former nuncio had behaved like Satan by making public the errors of his brother bishops.”

“Reaction came quickly to the Pope’s words, with many saying that it sounded like the Pope was suggesting that uncovering the sins of a bishop, such as abuse, was somehow the work of the devil. “
