Why Francis and Benedict won't answer the accusations dividing their church

CNN
By Daniel Burke, CNN Religion Editor
1 hr ago


One rarely leaves his monastery high on a hill in Vatican City. The other speaks freely -- too freely, critics say -- but has vowed silence on this matter, for now.

Two men, both clad in white, both called Holy Father, and now, both facing questions about a crucial facet of the Catholic Church's sexual abuse crisis: What did they know, and when?

Amid the onslaught of news about the scandal, it can be easy to overlook the historical novelty and high drama of this moment in the life of the church: For the first time in 600 years, there are two living popes, one retired and one active, whose fates may be intertwined, even as many of their followers are at odds.

It has been nearly a month since a former papal diplomat published a dramatic letter asserting a "homosexual networks" and widespread cover-ups within the highest levels of the Catholic Church.

The diplomat, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, demanded that Pope Francis resign for allegedly lifting sanctions that his predecessor, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, had placed on an American cardinal accused of sexual misconduct.

Whether those sanctions actually existed is a question that Francis and Benedict seem uniquely qualified to answer. But neither the 91-year-old German scholar, nor the 81-year-old Argentine Jesuit has said a word about them.

Supporters of both popes cast their silence in spiritual terms, forms of discipline and faith that truth will be revealed, eventually. Others say Benedict and Francis are loath to descend into a mudslinging fight with a former employee. Some wonder if more mundane strategies may be at work, too, such as self-preservation.

Meanwhile, many Catholics are clamoring for answers, anxious that the scandal, with its many troubling questions, could irreparably mar the church's moral reputation and undermine trust in its leaders.

Since Benedict's abdication in 2013, the two popes have taken pains to avoid awkward images or public spats.

But in the United States and beyond, Benedict is held by conservatives as a life raft in a sea of moral relativism. Francis is beloved by liberals for his reform-mindedness, focus on poverty and openness to new ideas. While many American Catholics still like Francis, his popularity has plummeted in the last year, according to a recent CNN poll.

"Maybe some people ... are not very happy with Pope Francis, so they dream about" Benedict, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the Pope's current ambassador to the United States, said at an event Wednesday in New York.

"At times our feelings are overwhelming, so instead of looking at reality as it is, you know, we judge reality from our own feelings, our resentments, our disappointments. And so, we say, 'This Pope, I don't understand him,' and we dream about the other."

The sex abuse scandal has exacerbated tensions between the two camps as both fight for high moral ground. Francis and Benedict know everything they say can be twisted and used in those skirmishes, friends and advisers say, and are mindful of mistakes they've made in the past.

So, while their factions fight online, both popes have kept their silence about Vigano.

Theories and inter-church debates have rushed into the vacuum, to many survivors' dismay. Clergy celibacy, homosexuality, seminary culture, even liturgy have been conscripted into left-right debates about the true source of the church's troubles.

Francis has spoken often about the church's clergy abuse crisis at large. He wrote an emotional letter after August's damning Pennsylvania grand jury report, repeatedly apologized in Ireland last month for that country's scandals and convened emergency meetings in Rome with American church leaders.

But many Catholics are urging him to be more forthcoming about Vigano's accusations. More than 46,000 Catholic women have signed an open letter to Francis, writing "to pose questions that need answers."

"We need leadership, truth and transparency," the women wrote. "We, your flock, deserve your answers now."

Other Catholics say Benedict is the pope who has questions to answer.

Vigano's accusations
The chief accusation against Francis comes from Vigano, who served both Benedict and Pope Francis as nuncio, or papal ambassador, to the United States from 2011 to 2016.

Francis has said he fired Vigano for plottinga 2015 meeting with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who became a conservative cause célèbre for refusing to sign same-sex marriage licenses.

In an 11-page letter published August 25, Vigano tore into his former Vatican colleagues, accusing them of turning a blind eye to "homosexual networks" within the church, according to the archbishop.

Vigano's chief evidence of this secret Catholic subculture comes in the person of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the former Archbishop of Washington, who was forced to resign this summer over accusations that he molested an altar boy and sexually abused young seminarians.

Now 88, McCarrick has denied the allegation about the altar boy and appealed his case to the Vatican after an investigation by the Archdiocese of New York found the accusation credible. He has not responded to the accusations about the seminarians.

For years, reports about McCarrick's misconduct with seminarians passed through the hands of powerful cardinals and archbishops, who apparently did nothing about them, according to Vigano. McCarrick himself was made a cardinal in 2001.

Finally, Vigano says, in 2009 or 2010 Pope Benedict XVI placed "canonical sanctions" on McCarrick, ordering him to live a life of prayer and penance away from the public eye.

But those sanctions have come under sharp questioning. Photographs and videos show McCarrick hobnobbing with church leaders, including Benedict and Vigano himself, at high-profile church events while the sanctions were supposedly in place.

The website that published Vigano's letter, National Catholic Register, now says the sanctions were not a "formal decree, just a private request" by Benedict to McCarrick.

If the sanctions were a "private request," Francis' supporters say, how was he supposed to enforce them?

Vigano's agenda has also been questioned. In addition to the Davis fiasco, he has aligned himself with conservatives opposed to aspects of Francis' papacy, including his efforts to change elements of church teachings.

But some allegations in Vigano's letter appear to be backed by documents, including a newly unearthed letter from a top Vatican official indicating that Catholic leaders had known about McCarrick's alleged misconduct with seminarians since 2000.

In the United States, conservative bishops have vouched for Vigano's character and called for an investigation of his allegations about McCarrick. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops had asked the Vatican to lead the probe, with its leadership traveling to Rome last week to make the request in person.

In a statement Wednesday, the bishops' conference said it still supports an investigation but made no mention of the Vatican.

The Vatican has not responded to requests for comment about a potential investigation into McCarrick.

'He is trying to save the church'
On the day Vigano's accusations broke, the Pope was asked about them on the plane ride home from Ireland.

"I will not say a single word about this," he said. "I believe the statement speaks for itself. And you have the journalistic capacity to draw your own conclusions. It's an act of faith. When some time passes and you have drawn your conclusions, I may speak."

Next Tuesday, the Pope will again face reporters, on a papal flight back from a four-day visit to the Baltic states.

While Francis has kept silent about Vigano so far, Pierre, his new ambassador, offered a glimpse of how the Pope may be approaching this situation.

Much has already been written and said about the Pope's Jesuit background -- perhaps too much, joked Pierre, ribbing his hosts, the Jesuit-run America Media, at Wednesday's event in Manhattan.

"They think they know everything, the Jesuits," Pierre said with a laugh.

But "discernment," a key part of Jesuit spirituality, plays an important role in Francis' life, the nuncio said. Discernment, as described in the Jesuits' Spiritual Exercises, is a way to contemplate complex situations and make sound decisions.

"It's the capacity to analyze the situation in the light of Christ and the Spirit," Pierre said.

Pierre said he saw Francis put discernment into practice while traveling with him through Mexico, where the nuncio was previously stationed.

"He is discerning all the time. He's in touch with reality. He has no idea already-made before he sees things."

"Maybe Providence is working in that," Pierre continued, "to have chosen somebody who has this capacity, this experience and this patrimony of the Jesuits and the Spiritual Exercises, precisely to guide the church in this difficult time."

One of the Pope's closest confidants, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, said the Pope sees the Vigano letter as part of a conservative campaign to disrupt his papacy, and "draws energy from the conflict."

Still, Francis has acknowledged errors in his handling of clergy sex abuse.

After dismissing allegations against a bishop accused of cover-ups, the Pope in April said he had made "serious mistakes in the assessment and perception" of Chile's abuse scandal. The Pope later accepted that bishop's resignation, along with several other Chilean bishops.

"He knows that he has made big mistakes on this, and he realizes that they were bad judgments, and now he wants to be cautious about not making the same mistakes," said Massimo Faggioli, a professor of church history at Villanova University in Philadelphia.

Francis also likely sees Vigano's accusations as part of a larger problem within the church: Catholic bishops face sexual misconduct allegations on several different continents right now.

(On Wednesday, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops announced new policies to police bishops, including a hotline to field complaints.)

"I believe that Francis is trying to do something bigger than defend himself," Faggioli said. "He is trying to save the church.

"The problem is that the real person who should respond to Vigano's letter is not Francis," the professor continued. "It's Benedict."

The 'private' Pope
Since retiring in 2013, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has lived a quiet, almost cloistered life. Now 91, friends say that he is frail but mentally sharp.

In his farewell address as Pope, Benedict promised to stay "hidden" from the world, even as he knew his unique personal history would make a complete disappearance nearly impossible.

Private letters between Benedict and a German cardinal publishedlast week in Germany reveal his concern for privacy, and that he not be seen as interfering in church matters.

In one letter, Benedict defends his decision to resign, when he became the first Pope in 600 years to abdicate St. Peter's Throne.

"With 'pope emeritus,' I tried to create a situation in which I am absolutely not accessible to the media and in which it is completely clear that there is only one pope," he wrote.

But Benedict's decision to retire as "pope emeritus" has had its own complications. Some conservative Catholics look to him as an anti-Pope, or at least an anti-Francis.

The Rev. Joseph Fessio, an American Jesuit who studied under Benedict and has published his works at Ignatius Press, said the former Pope likely knows of the efforts to pit him against Francis.

"In some ways, he has become the face of 'the Resistance,' " Fessio said, "even though he hasn't done anything to be a resistor."

When Benedict does make public remarks, conservatives often scour them for hints of unhappiness at the church's current situation, or leader.

Last year, a Catholic website ran a piece under the headline "Benedict XVI is silent, but we all know what he thinks."

In the piece, the author argues that Benedict's praise of a deceased cardinal's faith in the church, that he held faith in the church "even if at times the ship is almost filled to the point of shipwreck," could be interpreted as a dig at Francis. (The late Cardinal Joachim Meisner had also publicly questioned Francis' decision to open the door for remarried Catholics to receive Communion.)

Benedict's longtime aide, Archbishop Georg Ganswein, called the interpretations of the former Pope's remarks "stupid." But Fessio isn't so sure.

"He's got a very wry sense of humor, and he understates things," Fessio said. "He's not going to say, 'The church is a mess under Francis.' But his support for Meisner was a semi-coded message that he is aware of what's going on in the church right now."

Ganswein has said the former Pope will not comment on Vigano's letter, knocking down reports that he had approved its contents as "fake news."

Besides a reluctance to be seen as interfering, Benedict may have other reasons to hold his tongue, some Catholics say.

He was Pope from 2005 to 2013, when much of the alleged misconduct outlined in Vigano's letter took place. Even allies acknowledge that Benedict did not lead the Vatican curia with a firm hand.

"When it comes to Benedict, it's damned if you did, and damned if you didn't," said Paul Elie, a Catholic journalist who has written about the relationship between the two popes.

"If Benedict knew about the allegations against McCarrick and didn't put him under sanctions, that's not good," Elie said. "And if Benedict didn't know about the allegations, that's not good either."

But Fessio and other Catholics say Francis should answer Vigano's charges, instead of making vague remarks about "scandal" and "division" during morning homilies at Casa Santa Marta, his Roman residence.

"He's attacking Vigano and everyone who is asking for answers," Fessio said. "I just find that deplorable. Be a man. Stand up and answer the questions."

Many church watchers expect that Francis, or perhaps the Vatican's press office, will eventually, answer Vigano's charges. The question is, when?

Priest, 80, who blamed sex abuse on a cancer he didn't have is back in America to face justice after hiding in Morocco for almost TWO DECADES

  • Arthur Perrault is scheduled Tuesday to appear in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque for a detention hearing
  • Court documents filed in federal court late last week said victims described Perrault showering them with gifts and meals before abusing them
  • Victims also collaboratively described Perrault as someone who smoked pipes and wore silk underwear
  • In 1971, Perrault wrote an apology letter to the parents of one victim and blamed his actions on cancer
  • Perrault, 80, was extradited to New Mexico last week from Morocco in connection with sexual abuse cases that took place from 1991 to 1992
  • Kirtland Air Force Base and Santa Fe National Cemetery were where the incidents were said to take place

Pa. House advances bill allowing older victims of child sexual abuse to sue
by Liz Navratil and Angela Couloumbis, Updated: 21 hours ago

HARRISBURG — After protesters flocked to the Capitol on Monday, the state House advanced a measure that would allow more victims of child sex abuse to sue their attackers decades after being assaulted.

The House voted, 171-23, to amend a bill to lift for two years the state's civil statute of limitations that bars accusers older than 30 from suing over abuse that occurred when they were children. The change was a major recommendation in last month's state grand jury report that outlined decades of sex abuse and cover-ups by Catholic clergy across the state.

Related stories
The measure needs a final House vote, expected later this week. Its fate in the Senate is uncertain.

"This isn't a hard vote. It isn't," State Rep. Mark Rozzi (D., Berks), who as a child was raped by a priest, said on the House floor Monday afternoon. "Ask yourself one question: Do you stand with victims, or do you stand with pedophiles or the institutions that protect those pedophiles?"

Watching in the gallery as the House considered the amendment were Attorney General Josh Shapiro and his senior deputy, Daniel Dye. Their office oversaw the two-year investigation that found that more than 300 "predator priests" across the state assaulted at least 1,000 children over seven decades.

Victims also piled into the House gallery. When the bill passed, they applauded and many stood. A few people whistled.

The House vote on the bill, which would also eliminate the criminal and civil statute of limitations for future victims in most cases, came after throngs of protesters brought a buzz to the halls of the Capitol on the opening day of the legislature's fall voting session. The bill, as amended Monday, would also permit lawsuits against public institutions, although only in cases of "gross negligence."

Monday was the first time lawmakers had gathered en masse since late June, before the Aug. 14 release of the grand jury report outlining the abuse and cover-up in six of the state's eight Roman Catholic dioceses.

After the vote, dozens of victims gathered in the Capitol Rotunda with some of the state's highest-ranking officials, including Shapiro and Gov. Wolf.

"You've changed me," Shapiro said, turning to address the victims directly. "You've nourished my soul. You've actually strengthened my faith in humanity."

He and nearly a dozen others called on state legislators — and especially those in the Senate — to enact all four recommendations outlined by the grand jury, including the two-year window for civil suits.

In getting its first round of approval in the House, the proposed window received deep support from leaders and rank-and-file House members in both parties. All eyes are now on the Senate.

There, Republicans, led by President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R., Jefferson), have resisted past efforts to make retroactive changes to the statute of limitations, arguing that doing so would be unconstitutional.

Some Democrats also shared that concern. One, State Sen. Daylin Leach (D., Montgomery), said the grand jury report and meetings with victims or their relatives altered his perspective. He said he now supports all of the grand jury's recommendations.

"I wound up doing something that almost never happens in Harrisburg: I changed my mind," said the senator, whose own congressional bid this year was derailed by #MeToo accusations.

Leach, a lawyer, said he often viewed bills analytically and from a legal perspective.

"I got sort of caught up in my own head, on hyper-technical readings of the law, on this and that and worse-case scenarios, all of which served to blind me to what got me into politics in the first place, which is the desire to help people who have been wronged get justice," he said.

The climate in the Capitol feels different this time, said state Victim Advocate Jennifer Storm, who recalled participating in a similar rally two years ago and having to leave to make room for an event about a dog that had been abused.

She recalled wondering where the outrage was for the human victims.

"I don't know about you, but this feels like outrage," she said Monday night.

Throughout the day, survivors and their supporters participated in marches and rallies. Early on, they walked through Harrisburg, passing by the offices of public officials and of Long, Nyquist & Associates, one of the lobbying firms hired by the Catholic Church.

One woman went up to the large plate-glass windows on the street side of the lobbyists' office and yelled: "When are you going to stop lobbying for rapists?"

Another, Karen Weigle of Lancaster, stood with her hand on the brownstone exterior and silently prayed.

"I prayed the Lord would break off all the evil influence," she said afterward.

The crowd then marched into the Capitol for the first of two highly charged rallies, each of which featured a slew of public officials who called on the state legislature to enact the grand jury's recommendations.

One survivor, Shaun Dougherty, reminded the crowd that survivors had stood there before — a nod to what happened in 2016, when the state House passed a measure allowing victims to sue retroactively, and a Senate committee killed the effort.

"We've been here before," he said. "We're not finished yet."

Pa. Senate: Swamp creatures or saviors of clergy abuse victims? | Maria Panaritis
Posted: 10 hours ago


HARRISBURG — The gauntlet was thrown at 4:27 p.m. Monday onto the floor of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

It happened as Attorney General Josh Shapiro sat high above the House, his chief clergy-abuse prosecutor, Daniel Dye, there with him amid several rows of victims of child sexual abuse in the gallery at the state Capitol, all looking down at the lawmakers below.

By a 171-23 vote, House members backed legislative language that the Catholic Church and the insurance industry have spent years fighting to keep from becoming law: They approved an amendment to a bill that would suspend the civil statute of limitations for child sexual abuse for two full years.

It would allow lawsuits whether you were abused by a priest or a gym teacher in a public school. Whether you were abused 50 years ago or 20. It would give you justice.

This had never happened before in this state.

This was historic. And the only way it becomes law is if the Republicans who control the Senate, and the rank-and-file below them, show that they are anything but feckless and captive to the powerful lobbyists who take marching orders from unrepentant bishops and unconcerned underwriters.

I'm not holding my breath.

I'm holding my breath.

If members of Pennsylvania's Senate want a legacy they can be proud of, they should think long and hard about what choice they are about to make.

Successive grand jury investigations, starting with a report released in 2005 by Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham into the Philadelphia Archdiocese's horrors, and the tome of toxicity across six other dioceses in a report released last month by Shapiro, should leave no doubt about the right path.

The last time a comparable statute of limitations measure came this close, a more conservative one in 2016, the House sent it to the Senate. And there, like the swamp creatures that incumbents tend to resemble the more they collect electoral power, the Republicans who control the Senate killed it.

If the House approves the bill on Tuesday, as is expected, senators will have eight days to change their minds this time around.

Monday was historic in another way, too. Victims had their day in a way that had never before been seen.

For years, I've been making the drive to the Capitol to cover rallies by child sexual-abuse victims desperately seeking changes in state law. Time and again, the rallies were small. Very few lawmakers came out for them. Same went for reporters. And those who did rally sometimes were rushed off the Capitol steps so that, say, a cause more popular with lawmakers might take their place.

That was not the case Monday.

"We're doing this for those that can't walk with us anymore," Shaun Dougherty, abused as a 13-year-old in the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese, said as he led scores of fellow victims and advocates into the Capitol for the first of two rallies with public officials.

"Here's to victory," said a notably courageous Republican senator, John Rafferty of Montgomery County, alongside former Lt. Gov. Mark Singel and dozens of current and former lawmakers in a rally with victims. Rafferty declared he would do all he could to win his colleagues' support in the weeks ahead.

Sen. Daylin Leach, the Montgomery County Democrat who joined Republicans two years ago to defeat a similar measure, even took to the lectern to declare he'd had a change of heart. He said he was shaken after reading the latest grand jury report, and came to realize he had been excessively focused on technicalities instead of being a compassionate elected official. He made no mention of the #MeToo troubles of his own that derailed his congressional bid earlier this year.

"I changed my mind," Leach said at an evening vigil held in the Rotunda by Shapiro's office and attended also by Gov. Wolf and his wife, Frances. "I hope some of my colleagues in the Senate try it."

Democratic Sen. Vincent Hughes of Philadelphia, who was among the brave minority two years ago that tried to deliver a similar measure, gave a rousing speech ahead of Wolf — one that echoed exactly what's been on my mind for weeks.

"The next eight days, in many respects, will determine the character of the people who are in this building," Hughes said.

I want the justice system to deal with these people on earth and god to deal with their afterlife. I pray they find the Lord and they repent. After that it is not in my hands.

Yup, there's 2 places that child molester's can't survive, in prison & in my presence ! :totally steamed:

As for clergy & cops, because they are in a position of trust (as false as it is), there should be only one punishment for molesting a child/children, and that is a slow, painful death !

Alleged victims of billionaire 'serial sex abuser' Jeffrey Epstein - some as young as 13 when they claim he molested them - hope two new civil cases will finally bring them justice

  • Billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, 65, faced an enormous case against him in Florida in 2008 that alleged he sexually assaulted minor
  • Allegations stemmed from an arrangement where he would have someone call underage girls to give him a massage in exchange for a couple hundred dollars
  • The girls would arrive and eventually he would try or allegedly succeed in sexually assaulting them
  • Some of the alleged victims were as young as 13-years-old with over 100 accusations against him
  • The law caught up with him, but the intervention of a not yet President Trump's Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta helped secure him an unheard of deal
  • Epstein could have faced life in prison- instead he quietly did just 13-months behind bars at Palm Beach County jail
  • Now the victims have launched civil suits against him in an effort to have their voices be heard an possibly get justice

FYI... David Icke has no business refuting any of this while he is claiming to be Jesus Christ and writing books and making money by channeling demons.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Why would you pray to an angel? Wouldn't that be worshipping God's creation? Why not pray to God the father in the name of Jesus Christ?

There are many ways people worship.
Sincerity in prayer is the issue.

The first commandment is I am the Lord your God. The word Lord comes from the Hebrew ba'al which means owner, master, and husbandman. It also says he is a jealous God which refers to being jealous of other gods who receive worship, tying into the idol issue.

The second commandment refers to idols or false gods which has been removed by the Catholic bibles and separated by two do not covets. When you pray to an angel, you are already in violation of the first and second commandments.

Jesus shows how to pray in Matthew 6;9 (The Lord's prayer). There is no record of any Godly person in the bible ever praying to an angel.

I think praying this way would probably fit the description of Proverbs 28;9 as you are making the creator God the father subordinate to some created angel which is a sin in itself. In addition, the angels do not have any power to deal with prayers or to act as an intermediary. Our intermediary is Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 28;9
He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
