Why is this all coming out as Cdl. McCarrick's retirement is imminent? If true, these assertions' revelations won't do a damned bit of good. Why come out only now?
Actually, the cardinal's retirement is on indefinite hold. He claims he received a letter from the Apostolic Nuncio telling him to stay on the job for a few more years. What's odd is that in the months leading up to his 75th birthday, he was telling everyone how much he wanted to retire. He couldn't seem to talk about anything else.
I'd like to see that letter made public.
