November 12, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) In an interview with EWTNs Raymond Arroyo this evening, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former papal representative to the United States, responded to the Vaticans recently released McCarrick Report which tries to pin the lack of adequate response to McCarrick on Viganò himself.
Asked by Arroyo about the report claiming Viganò did not come forward to present evidence for this Vatican inquiry, Viganò replies that he was not asked to come forward. And to counter the argument that they couldnt reach him since he was in hiding, he notes that the Secretariat of State has my personal email address, which is still active.
Moreover, the Archbishop countered the reports accusation that he was lax in his investigation of one of the priests who came forward as having been abused by McCarrick, by information in the report itself.
The former nuncio names both Cardinal Sodano and Cardinal Bertone as the ones who misled Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI respectively about McCarrick.
In one of his concluding remarks, Archbishop Viganò says: The corruption of the highest levels of the Vatican is so evident that it leads one to consider the Report as an unworthy attempt to make Bergoglio appear absolutely alien to the manipulations of the Curia, indeed as a sort of implacable persecutor of the corrupt, while the evidence of the facts demonstrates the opposite. I would say that Bergoglio is to the deep church as Biden is to the deep state.
Biden is only a puppet. Bergogolio might possibly be a puppet in part, but Biden was never the brightest bulb to begin with and now. . . .
I couldn’t believe it when I read that the little black pope threw JPII under the bus.
must be the money....hidden money....
No..its pride and ego
Reminds me of when Elizabeth I died they had a whole cathedral they could have buried her in, but instead they placed her on top of Mary I, out of spite.
Nothing Frankie does is for the good of the Church and its people. Nothing.
It bothers me that the pope, JPII, who convened the Assisi love fests, who kissed a Koran, who invoked St. John the Baptist to protect Islam, who gave Bergoglio a red hat, who was the first pope to enter a mosque, who greatly relaxed the requirements for canonizations, who failed to discipline the homos, Marcial Maciel and Teddy McCarrick, was canonized in the first place.
The last pope canonized before the evil VCII, was St Pius X, the bane of modernists. After VC II, thanks to JPII, every since-deceased pope, with the exception of the short-reigning JP I, has been canonized. And Bergoglio has even joked that he'll be the next one.
It's become a farce.
Have you read St. Thomas Aquinas’s “Contra Gentiles”?
Yes, and it said no such thing about invoking a great saint (who happened to have been beheaded) to protect Islam.
