Piden la renuncia del papa Francisco

 

 DUBLÍN - En el último día de la misión del Papa Francisco a Irlanda, mientras emitía desgarradoras disculpas por los escándalos de abusos sexuales cometidos por clérigos, un ex alto diplomático del Vaticano afirmó en una carta publicada el domingo que el propio Papa se había unido a altos funcionarios vaticanos para encubrir el abusos y pidió su renuncia.

Carlo Maria Viganò, arzobispo y exnuncio en Washington entre 2011 y 2016, pidió la renuncia del máximo pontífice de la Iglesia católica al asegurar que conocía desde junio de 2013 las acusaciones de abusos sexuales sobre el cardenal Theodore McCarrick, quien fue sancionado en junio pasado.

El arzobispo Viganò escribió una carta de once páginas —basada en acusaciones personales y sin aportar ninguna documentación o prueba— que fue publicada por algunos medios de varios países en la que también acusó a otros miembros de la curia de formar “un grupo de presión gay” y encubrir las acusaciones contra el cardenal estadounidense.

La carta, una bomba escrita por Carlo Maria Viganò, el ex alto diplomático del Vaticano en los Estados Unidos y un acérrimo crítico del Papa, parecía sincronizado para hacer más que descarrilar los esfuerzos cuesta arriba de Francisco para recuperar a los fieles irlandeses, que se han vuelto lejos de la iglesia en grandes cantidades.

 

Sus acusaciones infundadas y ataques personales equivalieron a una extraordinaria declaración pública de guerra contra el papado de Francisco en su momento más vulnerable, destinado a derrocar a un Papa cuyo predecesor, Benedicto XVI, fue el primer pontífice en renunciar en casi 600 años.

 

El arzobispo Viganò afirmó que la jerarquía del Vaticano fue cómplice en encubrir las acusaciones de que el cardenal Theodore McCarrick había abusado sexualmente de seminaristas y que el papa Francisco sabía sobre los abusos del prelado estadounidense ahora deshonrado años antes de que se hicieran públicos. Sin embargo, sostenía la carta, Francis no castigó al cardenal, sino que lo capacitó para ayudar a elegir a poderosos obispos estadounidenses.

En una conferencia de prensa en el avión papal de regreso a Roma la noche del domingo, Francisco fue preguntado si había algo de verdad en la afirmación de que el Arzobispo Viganò le había informado personalmente en 2013 sobre la historia de abusos del Cardenal McCarrick. También se le preguntó si Benedicto había sancionado al cardenal estadounidense, como también decía la carta.

 

El Papa no lo negó, sino que eludió las preguntas al insistir en que no las dignificaría con una respuesta.

 

"No voy a decir una sola palabra sobre esto", dijo. "Creo que la declaración habla por sí misma. Y tienes la capacidad periodística suficiente para sacar tus conclusiones. Es un acto de confianza ".

 

El ataque de 7.000 palabras contra los aliados de Francisco en el Vaticano, publicado la madrugada del domingo en Dublín por varios medios conservadores católicos antagónicos al Papa, representó una fuerte escalada en las antiguas y cada vez más cáusticas rivalidades dentro de la iglesia.

Facciones han batallado sobre la dirección de la iglesia bajo Francisco, con conservadores, especialmente algunos cardenales y obispos estadounidenses, advirtiendo que su enfoque pastoral e inclusivo y el énfasis en asuntos sociales diluyen la doctrina de la iglesia y representan una amenaza mortal para el futuro de la fe.

Ya en la tarde del domingo, la batalla se estaba uniendo.

 

El Cardenal Blase J. Cupich, el arzobispo de Chicago, quien está alineado con Francisco y fue blanco de la carta del Arzobispo Viganò, dijo en una entrevista telefónica que sospechaba que los angloparlantes habían ayudado al Arzobispo Viganò a escribir la carta. Llamó al Papa "un hombre íntegro".

 

"Si comete un error, lo admite", dijo el cardenal Cupich. "Es por eso que estoy convencido de que esto es algo a lo que él responderá de manera apropiada".

 

El Cardenal Cupich también dijo que el momento de la carta planteaba preguntas.

 

"Tendría que dejar que él le pregunte por qué cronometró el lanzamiento de esto en este momento, particularmente si considera que esta información es muy importante e importante", dijo el cardenal.

 

El arzobispo Charles J. Chaput de Filadelfia, una importante voz conservadora en la Iglesia Católica, quien según la carta fue menospreciado por Francisco, avaló la integridad del Arzobispo Viganò en una declaración de su vocero.

 

La disposición del Papa y sus aliados para llegar a los homosexuales católicos ha enfurecido a los conservadores, muchos de los cuales, como el arzobispo Viganò, culpan a los homosexuales por la crisis de abuso sexual. El Papa ha argumentado que el abuso es un síntoma de una cultura de privilegio e impermeabilidad entre los sacerdotes que valoran las tradiciones de la iglesia sobre sus feligreses.

 

El mes pasado, Francisco aceptó la renuncia del cardenal McCarrick, la primera de esas renuncias en la memoria, después de que The New York Times y otros medios publicaran versiones del presunto abuso y una investigación interna de la iglesia estadounidense considerara creíble una acusación de que tenía relaciones sexuales abusó de un menor.

DUBLIN — On the final day of Pope Francis’ mission to Ireland, as he issued wrenching apologies for clerical sex abuse scandals, a former top Vatican diplomat claimed in a letter published on Sunday that the pope himself had joined top Vatican officials in covering up the abuses and called for his resignation.

The letter, a bombshell written by Carlo Maria Viganò, the former top Vatican diplomat in the United States and a staunch critic of the pope’s, seemed timed to do more than simply derail Francis’ uphill efforts to win back the Irish faithful, who have turned away from the church in large numbers.

Its unsubstantiated allegations and personal attacks amounted to an extraordinary public declaration of war against Francis’ papacy at perhaps its most vulnerable moment, intended to unseat a pope whose predecessor, Benedict XVI, was the first pontiff to resign in nearly 600 years.

Archbishop Viganò claimed that the Vatican hierarchy was complicit in covering up accusations that Cardinal Theodore McCarrick had sexually abused seminarians and that Pope Francis knew about the abuses by the now-disgraced American prelate years before they became public. Yet, the letter contended, Francis did not punish the cardinal, but instead empowered him to help choose powerful American bishops.

In a news conference on the papal plane back to Rome late Sunday evening, Francis was asked whether there was any truth to the claim that Archbishop Viganò had personally informed him in 2013 of Cardinal McCarrick’s history of abuse. He was also asked whether Benedict had sanctioned the American cardinal, as the letter also claimed.

The pope did not deny it, but sidestepped the questions by insisting he would not dignify them with a response.

“I will not say a single word about this,” he said. “I believe the statement speaks for itself. And you have the sufficient journalistic ability to make your conclusions. It’s an act of trust.”

The 7,000-word attack on Francis’ allies in the Vatican, published early Sunday Dublin time by several conservative Catholic outlets antagonistic to the pope, represented a steep escalation in the longstanding, and increasingly caustic, rivalries within the church.

Factions have battled over the direction the church has gone under Francis, with conservatives, especially some American cardinals and bishops, warning that his pastoral and inclusive approach and emphasis on social issues dilute church doctrine and pose a mortal threat to the future of the faith.

Already on Sunday afternoon, the battle was being joined.

Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, the archbishop of Chicago, who is aligned with Francis and was a target of Archbishop Viganò’s letter, said in a phone interview that he suspected English speakers had helped Archbishop Viganò write the letter. He called the pope “a man of integrity.”

“If he makes a mistake, he admits it,” Cardinal Cupich said. “That’s why I’m convinced this is something that he is going to respond to in an appropriate way.”

Cardinal Cupich also said the timing of the letter raised questions.

“I’d have to leave it up to him to ask him why he timed the release of this at this moment, particularly if he considered this information so very critical and important,” the cardinal said.

Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Philadelphia, a leading conservative voice in the Catholic Church, who according to the letter was disparaged by Francis, vouched for Archbishop Viganò’s integrity in a statement from his spokesman.

The willingness of the pope and his allies to reach out to gay Catholics has infuriated conservatives, many of whom, like Archbishop Viganò, blame homosexuals for the sex abuse crisis. The pope has argued that the abuse is a symptom of a culture of privilege and imperviousness among priests who value the church’s traditions over its parishioners.

Last month, Francis accepted the resignation of Cardinal McCarrick, the first such resignation in living memory, after The New York Times and other news outlets published accounts of the alleged abuse and an internal investigation by the American church deemed credible an accusation that he had sexually abused a minor.


Archbishop Viganò said that Benedict had already punished Cardinal McCarrick for his abuse of seminarians and priests. The archbishop writes that Benedict had banned the American cardinal from publicly celebrating Mass, from living in a seminary and from traveling to give lectures.

There is no public record of such a sanction, and the cardinal continued to celebrate Mass. And in 2012, Cardinal McCarrick joined bishops in the Vatican to sing happy birthday to Benedict as they presented him with a fresh strawberry-and-kiwi custard cake.

Cardinal Cupich said he was not aware of any restrictions that Pope Benedict put on Cardinal McCarrick, as Archbishop Viganò asserts.

“How can you have secret restrictions? What does that mean?” Cardinal Cupich said, adding that it would have been Archbishop Viganò’s duty as nuncio to inform the American bishops of the restrictions. “Why didn’t he tell us this?” he asked. “Why didn’t he enforce it?”

Archbishop Viganò accused Francis of failing to apply the sanctions on Cardinal McCarrick and instead rehabilitating and entrusting him to help choose powerful American bishops, including Cardinal Cupich.

Archbishop Viganò despises many of those bishops, who now wield influence and promote Francis’ pastoral approach, and he complained in the letter of being deprived of the voice typically given to a papal nuncio in choosing them. He targeted those bishops and cardinals by name, but saved his strongest fire for Francis.

“He knew from at least June 23, 2013, that McCarrick was a serial predator,” Archbishop Viganò wrote.

“In this extremely dramatic moment for the universal Church,” he wrote, “he must acknowledge his mistakes and, in keeping with the proclaimed principle of zero tolerance, Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example for cardinals and bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them.”

At a 2013 reception in the library of the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican shortly after Francis was elected pope, Archbishop Viganò was effusive with praise for him, saying his audience was “extremely nice, extremely warm.”

But in the letter, he said he had received an icy reception from Francis. And he said the pope had told him on June 23, 2013: “The bishops in the United States must not be ideologized, they must not be right wing.” Francis then added, according to Archbishop Viganò, that they must not be left wing, “and when I say left-wing, I mean homosexual.”

It was then, he said, that Francis asked his opinion of Cardinal McCarrick.

“Holy Father,” Archbishop Viganò said he had responded, “I don’t know if you know Cardinal McCarrick, but if you ask the Congregation for Bishops there is a dossier this thick about him. He corrupted generations of seminarians and priests, and Pope Benedict ordered him to withdraw to a life of prayer and penance.”

Archbishop Viganò, who blames gays for the child abuse crisis that has destroyed the church’s standing in many countries, dedicated entire sections of the letter to outing cardinals who he claims belong to what he characterizes as a pernicious “homosexual current” within the Vatican.

“These homosexual networks,” he wrote, “which are now widespread in many dioceses, seminaries, religious orders, etc., act under the concealment of secrecy and lies with the power of octopus tentacles, and strangle innocent victims and priestly vocations, and are strangling the entire church.”

Archbishop Viganò is no stranger to stirring trouble in the Vatican.

A cultural conservative born into a wealthy family in Varese, Italy, he received the title of archbishop from Pope John Paul II in 1992. He later joined the church’s diplomatic corps, one of the traditional sources of power in the Vatican, which gave him access to much of the information he alleges in the letter. In 2009, he was installed by Pope Benedict XVI as secretary of the governorate of Vatican City State, a position similar to mayor of Vatican City.

Benedict wanted him to enact government overhauls, but Archbishop Viganò’s efforts in pursuit of that goal earned him powerful enemies.

In early 2011, hostile anonymous articles attacking Archbishop Viganò began appearing in the Italian news media, the bulletin board of Vatican power politics. Archbishop Viganò appealed to Benedict’s second in command, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, who instead echoed the articles’ complaints.

Those appeals and protests, later leaked by the pope’s butler, became the heart of the church scandal known as VatiLeaks, which many church observers say contributed to the Benedict XVI’s resignation.

Francis removed Archbishop Viganò from his job as nuncio to the United States in 2016, in part for nearly ruining the pope’s trip to the United States by giving papal face time to Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Soon after his departure, a criminal investigation into an archbishop in Minneapolis-St. Paul revealed a memo that Archbishop Viganò had written in 2014 in an effort to suppress a church investigation into alleged homosexual activity by the Minnesota prelate, Archbishop John C. Nienstedt.

Since his return to Rome, Archbishop Viganò has associated with traditionalist Catholics deeply critical of Pope Francis.

Archbishop Viganò’s letter, while especially inconvenient for the pope, who spent Sunday morning praying for abuse victims at a shrine in Knock, Ireland, also goes after a broad array of current and past Vatican officials and American prelates. He names all of them.

He said that his predecessors in the Vatican’s embassy in Washington, now all deceased, knew about Cardinal McCarrick’s alleged relationships with seminarians and priests and had reported it to the Vatican, but that successive secretaries of state — Angelo Sodano, Cardinal Bertone and Pietro Parolin — did nothing.

Archbishop Viganò said that he had personally met with Cardinal McCarrick to remind him that he was under sanction during their first meeting after he arrived in the United States.

“The cardinal, muttering in a barely comprehensible way, admitted that he had perhaps made the mistake of sleeping in the same bed with some seminarians at his beach house,” he writes.

After bumping into Cardinal McCarrick at the pope’s residence in the Vatican, and listening to the American boast about his freedom to travel, Archbishop Viganò wrote, he contacted Cardinal Parolin, the secretary of state and top adviser to Francis, in April 2014 inquiring whether the sanctions were still in force.

He said that neither Cardinal Parolin nor a host of other Vatican officials had replied, but that when he had brought up the subject with Cardinal McCarrick’s replacement in Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, “it was immediately clear to me that he was fully aware of it.”

Ed McFadden, a spokesman for Cardinal Wuerl, disputed that account on Sunday. “In spite of what Archbishop Viganò’s memo indicates, Cardinal Wuerl did not receive any documentation or information during his time in Washington regarding any actions taken against Archbishop McCarrick,” Mr. McFadden said.

Some survivors of clerical abuse called the allegations a distraction.

“This is infighting between curia factions that are exploiting the abuse crisis and victims of clergy sexual abuse as leverage in the struggle for church power,” said Peter Isely, a survivor. “The sexual abuse crisis is not about whether a bishop is a liberal or a conservative. It is about protecting children.”

The controversy over the allegations is expected to grow in coming days, especially as Francis has declined to deny it.

Instead on Sunday’s flight, he blamed the media for promoting an “atmosphere of guilt” around suspected clerics and shared that until his visit he “had never heard” about Ireland’s notorious mother and baby homes, where children were ripped away from unwed mothers.

He also sought to strike the same conciliatory tone that hundreds of thousands of faithful heard earlier in the day as he began a Mass at Phoenix Park in Dublin by explicitly asking forgiveness for the church’s sins and abuse.

“Some members of the hierarchy didn’t own up to these painful situations,” he said at the Mass. “And kept silent.”
