Last Tuesday, the Vatican released the long awaited “McCarrick report” covering the Vatican’s official review of documents and witness spanning laicized McCarrick’s 40-year career including his egregious, scandalous, and predatory behavior against minors and seminarians.

This same report now is said to show McCarrick deceived the late Pope Saint John Paul II in order to gain his appointment as archbishop of Washington.

Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin said in a statement:

“Reading the document will show that all procedures, including the appointment of bishops, depend on the commitment and honesty of the people concerned. These are pages that encourage us to reflect deeply and ask ourselves what more we can do in the future, learning from the painful experiences of the past.”

President of the Polish Bishop’s Conference Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki said in a statement:

“Before McCarrick’s nomination to Washington, the Pope did not receive full and complete information about his moral behavior from the American bishops, and McCarrick himself lied—in a letter of 6 August 2000—, saying that he had no sexual relations with anyone. The case of ex-Cardinal McCarrick is also harmful to St. John Paul II, who was cynically deceived by him.”

    Parolin is poison. I lost confidence in Bergoglio and his ring of 9 orcs after viewing the photo of him from Feb1972 with Leonardo Boff and 17 others at a liberation theology gathering, which was posted last year to commemorate Boff’s 80th birthday. John Paul ii visibly skewered Boff on the tarmac after landing when he knelt to kiss the Pope’s ring. Nothing has changed. The devil cannot be debated, the Lord God Almighty will hand us over to our enemies if we exhibit disobedience to His word by embracing heresy. I continue to pray for St.Paul-like interior and exterior conversion for the whole hierarchy whose corrupted mandate is power, not humble service. Virtue and sin cannot co-exist in the soul. Jesus Christ is Lord and He triumphs. Even if I don’t live to see it, I believe it with my marrow. No more blasphemy and sacrilege and desecration to Mother Church. Our Lady can never be paid back for the offences against the most Sacred Heart of Jesus and her Immaculate Heart. But it’s our duty to God’s moral law of ethics and creation and right order, with every breath and fervent prayer, to try.

    • Lord God the Father Almighty, send us ‘Beorn’ to protect ‘Thorin’ and his crew, a masculine upright virtuous uncompromising leader, who swallows no garbage, is wary of treason/betrayal much like Saint Joan of Arc, showing up in the heat of battle with immense compassion for the dead/dying but keeps resolute eyes on the One True Faith, our King of Kings, INRI. Amen.
      (Pardon the attempt at humour through metaphor, it’s my happy place.)
