Pope Francis knew of abusive priest, claims former Vatican official in calling for resignation – CBS News

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, nuncio (ambassador) to the U.S., 2011-2016, is the whistleblower.

Vigano made the claims in a lengthy statement that concludes with a call for Francis’ resignation: “In this extremely dramatic moment for the universal Church, he must acknowledge his mistakes and, in keeping with the proclaimed principle of zero tolerance, Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example to Cardinals and Bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them,” he writes.

Admit you are wrong and get out of town. It’s the penance you recommend to the faithful.
