Cardinal Wuerl To Meet With The Pope

DC: Cardinal Donald Wuerl announced Tuesday that he will meet with Pope Francis soon to discuss his resignation in order to bring healing to abuse survivors.

Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington, made the announcement in a letter to the priests of the archdiocese, saying that the decision was “an essential aspect” of helping the church as whole heal from the recent revelations rampant sexual abuse and cover-ups found the Pennsylvania grand jury report and further allegations from other members of the clergy.

Several prominent D.C. Catholics and groups of sexual abuse survivors demanded Wuerl’s resignation in light of the grand jury report’s finding that he protected predatory priests and kept them in ministry during his tenure as bishop of Pittsburgh. Resignation demands intensified after archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano released an 11-page letter detailing Wuerl’s alleged knowledge of and failure to confront Theodore McCarrick’s alleged abuses.

“It was clear that some decision, sooner rather than later, on my part is an essential aspect so that this archdiocesan Church we all love can move forward,” Wuerl wrote. “As a fruit of our discernment I intend, in the very near future, to go to Rome to meet with our Holy Father about the resignation I presented nearly three years ago, November 12, 2015.”

It is customary for bishops to tender resignation letters to the pope once they reach 75 years of age.  more here

  1. Wuerl knows his arrest is coming – he’s getting out of the country to try and save his own neck.

    His passport should be confiscated, now.

  2. Wuerl should just be the beginning, McCarrick is the real evil in all of this. Plus, the questions raised by Archbishop Vigano’s letter can’t be answered by Wuerl’s resignation. High level individuals knew what McCarrick was doing all while he was being promoted.

  3. Well, when you take gay men, put them in a house with a bunch of other gay men. Then say those gay men are celibate so they can hide their gayness from family and society. Then give these gay men confused teenage boys to shape.

    What did you think would happen?

  4. DC: Cardinal Donald Wuerl announced Tuesday that he will meet with Pope Francis soon to discuss his resignation in order to bring healing to abuse survivors.

    Meeting to discuss how to address the possible upcoming RICO indictments. Further discussion on how to best cover up all the abuse that took place to prevent any downward direction on money contributions from the peasants.

    There, fixed it for you…

  5. Alternate Headline: Pedo Pope And Cardinal Wuerl Combat Satan’s Sexy Young Gossips

    Why can’t the hot ones keep their pretty little mouths shut?

    In a better world, the flock would murder these usurpers where they stand and reclaim their church. Apparently, no joke about child abuse was ever untrue and this is being tolerated because a lot of people are tied to a church unmoored from any principles.

    If the priests are your pipeline to god, what does he think of your selection?

  6. What did the Pope Narcissus know and when did he know it?

    well, why don’t we visit Argentina and take a look at what witnesses have said his behavior was before he was elected Pope by the corrupt Cardinals.

    This same material is available on onter traditional Catholic sites. Ann is as good a source as any and her site seems to have enough bandwidth to keep up.

    I will try and sort out some more as time allows. I have a lot on my plate right now.

  7. I’ll say this for Bergoglio: he is trying his damnedest (!) to deliver on his part of the bargain he made with the cardinals and vatican bureaucracy to name him pope. (This is secondary to the bargain he made with the devil.)

  8. This scandal has been known to me for going on five decades, it is inconceivable that those inside The Church were unaware. What is coming out today is has been being bandied about within the traditionalists in The Catholic Church since before the days of the internet, I used to subscribe to New Oxford Review and other print sources and I can say with absolute honesty that what is being confirmed today is virtually a carbon copy of what has been being reported in the traditionalist periodical literature and has been covered up by the Bill Donahue’s, the mainstream “Catholic” press (such as the National Catholic Distorter, and the mainstream media since the 1970s.

  9. Matthew 18:6
    “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

    There’s a special place in Hell for these pedophiles.
