Pope Francis refused to comment on Viganò’s charge, saying to the press,
“I read the statement this morning, and I must tell you sincerely that, I must say this, to you and all those who are interested: Read the statement carefully and make your own judgment. I will not say a single word on this,”but this reply doesn’t satisfy the Catholic faithful. While tensions rise in the US Catholic Church, a group of anti-Trump nuns called Nuns on the Bus, a Washington-Based Catholic advocacy group, will depart in October, for a 21-state tour across the country to protest Donald Trump’s controversial tax cuts, and try to sabotage the midterm elections. Meanwhile, in a letter to Pope Francis, thousands of Catholic women plead for the Pope to finally break his silence on the charges leveled against him by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who stated that the Pope knew of Cardinal McCarrick’s abuses and predatory nature, but elevated him to a leading position in the US Church, instead of sanctioning him or turning him over to US authorities.
The letter ,written to Pope Francis, is signed by 53 seminarians, professors, consecrated women, theologians, missionaries, and mothers of the Church, and is now backed by more than 13,000 women, implores: “Our hearts are broken, our faith tested, by the escalating crisis engulfing our beloved Church. We are angry, betrayed and disillusioned. The pain and suffering of the victims never ends, as each news cycle brings more horrific revelations of sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, cover-ups, and deceit—even at the Church’s highest levels.”
The letter goes on to state very clearly the most pressing matter for most Catholics right now:
“Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s recent statement impels us to reach out to you directly for answers. His testimony accuses you, Holy Father, and highly placed cardinals of turning a blind eye to former Cardinal McCarrick’s egregious behavior, and promoting this predator as a global spokesman and spiritual leader. Is this true?”
Nuns on the bus should be looking after the affairs of their own Church in turmoil, instead of involving themselves in anti-Trump politics. In the meantime, Archbishop Viganò stated that he did not act out of rancor or anger, nor is he seeking revenge against the Pope. He simply says he wants, “the truth to come to light.” Those who believe he would be animated by personal grudges towards the Argentine Pontiff, the prelate replies: “I have never had feelings of revenge or rancor in all these years, in which I have been tested by so much slander and falsehoods on my behalf”. On the reactions to the publication of his 7000-word statement, he says that. “There are those who no longer know where to draw the poison to destroy my credibility, someone even wrote that I was hospitalized twice with compulsory treatment (Tso) for drug use”. The former nuncio knows that there are those who, “imagine conspiracies, political plots of all kind”, but, he stresses that, “there are also many articles of appreciation and I have seen messages by priests and the faithful thanking me, because my testimony was for them a glimmer of new hope for the Church”.
