Nuncio reported McCarrick before he became D.C. archbishop, new book confirms
This week on “Inside the Vatican,” America’s Vatican news explainer podcast, producer Colleen Dulle and Vatican correspondent Gerard O’Connell cover new developments in the case of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
A new book by two Italian journalists, Andrea Tornielli of Vatican Insider and Gianni Valente of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, examines the history of reports of abuse by Archbishop McCarrick and confirms, via anonymous Vatican sources, that Archbishop McCarrick’s abuse was reported to the Vatican before he was named Archbishop of Washington, D.C. in 2000.
In this episode, we also discuss which countries might offer asylum to Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian woman whose death sentence for blasphemy was recently overturned, though she remains in prison out of fear for her safety.
Last, we talk about what the recent disappearance of four underground Chinese priests will mean for the recent deal between China and the Vatican and the ongoing relationship between them.
