President of U.S. bishops’ conference seeks papal audience after Viganò letter

Aug 27, 2018

“The questions raised deserve answers that are conclusive and based on evidence. Without those answers, innocent men may be tainted by false accusation and the guilty may be left to repeat sins of the past,” said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo. . . .
