Bishop Lopes: I don’t believe bishops who plead ignorance of McCarrick

Plain talk from the Anglican crossover, established 2012 by Benedict:

Bishop Steven Lopes, the ordinary of the US ordinariate, has said he doesn’t believe his fellow-bishops who profess ignorance of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s wrongdoing.

In a homily delivered on Sunday 19 August, Bishop Lopes said that one kind of response to the McCarrick revelations was “not good enough. It’s the parade of cardinals and bishops who have rushed to the television cameras, clutching their pectoral crosses, saying, ‘I knew nothing.’

“I don’t believe it, and I am one of them.”

One of the youngest, as it happens, of “the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter . . . equivalent to a diocese, created by the Vatican in 2012 for people nurtured in the Anglican tradition who wish to become Catholic.”
