The last month has left Catholics around the world, and in the United States in particular, reeling from one scandal after another. Over the weekend, another allegation came out that has rocked the Catholic faithful.
In an 11-page letter, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, accused several Church officials of covering up Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s allegations of sexual abuse. Vigano names many prelates he believes to be complicit in the cover-up, and accuses Pope Francis of lifting the sanctions placed on McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI during his pontificate. Towards the end of his testimony, Vigano calls for the resignation of Pope Francis, due to his alleged role in covering up the crimes of McCarrick.
This continues to be a challenging time for the Church, and many of the lay faithful are unsure of where they can place their trust, and how they can participate in the Catholic Church amidst so many scandals. Rev. Francis J. Hoffman (aka Father Rocky) appeared on Morning Air® today to address this latest accusation, and to encourage the laity in their call to holiness.
