Francis knew McCarrick was a serial predator...

Archbishop Vigano told the truth about Francis and members of the Church's hierarchy who protected Cardinal McCarrick.

The National Catholic Register reports that: "Aboard the papal plane, the Holy Father declined to confirm or deny that he knew about the U.S. archbishop’s sexual misconduct in 2013, yet reinstated him in ministry."

Such comes as no surprise.  Writing for The Spectator, Damian Thompson notes that, "Pope Francis stands accused this morning of covering up the crimes of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, one of the most senior and sinister sex abusers in the history of the Catholic Church.

The allegation comes from the Vatican’s former apostolic nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, 77, who has called on the Pope to resign.

In a devastating 11-page written testament, Viganò says Francis lifted severe sanctions imposed on McCarrick for sexual wrongdoing by Pope Benedict XVI, the existence of which has not been made public until now.

Viganò writes that he told Francis in person in 2013 that McCarrick ‘had corrupted generations of seminarians and priests and Pope Benedict ordered him to withdraw to a life of prayer and penance’.

But, says the former nuncio, the new Pope decided instead to cover up for the retired Archbishop of Washington – and made him one of his most trusted advisers.

‘He knew from at least June 23, 2013 that McCarrick was a serial predator,’ writes Archbishop Viganò. ‘He knew that he was a corrupt man, [but] he covered for him to the bitter end.’

Only when the media revealed last month that McCarrick was suspected of the abuse of a minor did Francis take action ‘to save his image in the media.'"

Penance Penance Penance

to avoid Divine vengeance

for not showing any remorse

and trying our will to enforce

The reign of the Impostor has arrived

the Church, of TRUTH is being deprived

the whole world hangs on his lips

while being readied for a total eclipse

The true followers of Christ

trying to pull off the heist

are persecuted for noncompliance
and being countered with defiance

When it will seem that all is lost

everything sacred has been tossed

God will deliver us from our agony

and reign forever in all His Majesty

The purification of Holy Mother Church is at hand. Truly, as Pope Benedict VXI once said:"A smaller but purer Church will emerge after the trials" (paraphrased) Restore your Church, O Lord, deliver your faithful from the wolves.
