Of Allegations Against Pope Francis.

26 August 2018, and post it on their Web-Sites and other Social Media, immediately.”

Pope Tells Media:
He’s "Not Going To Say A Word"
About McCarrick Cover-Up.

26 August 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis sidestepped questions today about explosive allegations that he knew of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s abuse, and nevertheless lifted Sanctions that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI had imposed against the Cardinal.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who served as Apostolic Nuncio in Washington D.C.,
from 2011-2016, wrote in a Letter published last night that, after Pope Francis’ election, he had communicated the problems about McCarrick to the Pope, but rather than continue the Sanctions, Pope Francis made McCarrick “his trusted counsellor.”


The Pope was questioned about the allegation aboard the Papal plane this evening on the way back to Rome after his visit to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families.

“Read the Statement carefully yourselves and make your own judgement. I am not going to say a word about this,” Pope Francis said.
