ROME - Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the former nuncio to the United States who called on Pope Francis to resign for allegedly lifting sanctions placed on Archbishop Theodore E. McCarrick, now says those “sanctions” were “private” and neither he nor now-retired Pope Benedict XVI was ever able to enforce them.
While Vigano went into hiding after publishing his “testimony” Aug. 25 about McCarrick - and about Francis and a host of other current and former Vatican officials - the former nuncio has continued to speak to the writers who originally helped him publish the document.
Francis has not said anything since Aug. 26 when he told reporters traveling with him to study the document and do their own research. Even if the sanctions were private, Vigano claimed Francis was aware of them. https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2018/09/01/former-nuncio-now-says-sanctions-against-mccarrick-were-private/
So now Vigano is starting to contradict his own original letter that Pope Francis lifted those sanctions.
Pope Francis is showing his wisdom and holiness by stating that he would not say a word about the accusations.
The truth will be exposed and Vigano and those who jumped on his bandwagon against Pope Francis, will have to humble themselves in repentance.
