A statement from Holy See Press Office Director Matteo Bruni on Friday said:
“On Tuesday, 10th November 2020, at 2 p.m. (Rome time), the Holy See will publish the report on the Holy See’s institutional knowledge and decision-making process related to former Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick (from 1930 to 2017), prepared by the Secretariat of State by mandate of the Pope. The same day, an hour before publication, a section of the document will be provided in advance to accredited journalists.”
Theodore McCarrick, the former cardinal and emeritus archbishop of Washington was been laicized in February of 2019 in response to his egregious, scandalous, and predatory behavior against minors and seminarians.
The report, initially expected to be released December of last year, covers the Vatican’s official review of documents and witness spanning McCarrick’s 40-year career.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York said Thursday the U.S. Church is “still waiting for the release of the so-called ‘McCarrick Report’ by the Holy See, detailing the damning story of former-cardinal Theodore McCarrick. That could be another black-eye for the Church.”
“Better that the story come out, in all its awful detail, to both bring some measure of peace to the victim-survivors, as well as serve as a lesson on how to prevent a similar recurrence in the future. We can thank Pope Francis for keeping his promise to undertake and release this report.”
