Pope Francis has issued a statement regarding Abp. McCarrick: 

Abuse and cover-up “can no longer be tolerated,”
Clericalism “is no longer acceptable”?  Huh?

    World Over – 2018-10-04 – Exclusive – Cardinal Gerhard Müller with Raymond Arroyo

    The former head of the Doctrine of Faith Cardinal Gerhard Muller says that no one but a pope can order the investigation of a cardinal.
    Cardinal Muller’s concern is not so much with McCarrick who is now basically inactive but rather with some others who remain active and need investigating.
    This interview is a very interesting and important 30 minutes.

    Any junior district attorney can do the same.

    This evening I watched the video of His Excellency Bishop Matano introduce Rochester’s CMA for 2018-2019.

    His demeanor was somber and sad regarding the clergy sex abuse scandal in the Church. The Bishop made a point of referencing the PA Grand Jury report and the Archbishop McCarrick scandal. Listeners are assured that protection of children and vulnerable adults from clergy sex abuse is a Diocesan priority. Thank you, Your Excellency!

    However, my question is what about clergy homosexual predation? Is that issue on the Diocesan radar screen? I do hope that every effort is being made to encourage and to exhort Rochester Diocesan clergy to be chaste. Believing, teaching and living Catholic Sexual Morality Will Benefit Clergy and Laity alike!

    Holy Mary, Mother Of God, Pray For Us….

    Maureen Mullarkey concludes her article with, “Zero-tolerance policies, safe environment training, “victim assistance coordinators,” and the like are of small use if the leading cause cannot be acknowledged.”

    After there reports of McCarrick’s sexual abuse of young seminarians and priests for decades and Pope Benedict XVI sanctions on Mccarrick, which were ignored, what Pope Francis plans to do now-seems “a little too little, too late.” (And it shouldn’t have taken a report of sexual abuse happening to a minor for him to do something).

    The Catholic Church seems to be breaking into 2 seperate camps: the pre Vatican 2 people and the post Vatican 2 people similar to the orthodox Jews and the Reform Jews. this will set the one holy catholic and apostolic church back to the point that there will be a void in the world which cannot be filled. I think we should not rely on ST Michael to deliver us but it is time to ask Blessed Mother to intervene and . like a good mother sometimes does, give some people time out!!.

    Roger Peyrefitte (1907-2000) appears to have been a public figure and one forerunner defender of modern gay rights. He stands out because he was an outspoken Catholic who probably should have been excommunicated but wasn’t. I believe there must be some elderly Catholic today who know the 100 year Catholic gay movement by heart. The rest of us struggle to scrape the pieces of the puzzle together.

    The Church has been and continues to be lenient by submitting to this deliberate and painful separation.
    Didn’t we witness the illegitimate birth in the DOR on a less grand scale in 1999?
    Vatican II has been and continues to be the vehicle insuring this doorway that many will pass through. Something this massive requires a vehicle large enough to deliver.

    We are witnessing the final birth of something. Vigano’s testament is acute pain while the scandals of abuses of many kinds stain like meconium; indicating what is yet to come.
