In the beginning of this sermon, I quote breaking news from last night via the National Catholic Register. To see why Cdl. Wuerl is the featured image on this blog post, go to the sixth and seventh paragraph here.
Bishop Strickland of Tyler, Texas has already written to his faithful today regarding the credibility of the allegations of Pope Francis covering up the child abuse of Cardinal McCarrick. The letter is found towards the end of this The American Conservative article, including this sentence: “Let us be clear that they are still allegations but as your shepherd I find them to be credible. Using this standard the response must be a thorough investigation similar to those conducted any time allegations are deemed to be credible.”
