Pope Francis signed the decree of dismissal from the clerical state on February 28 and this was made public today. Arsenault was at the epicenter of the abuse crisis in any number of ways. Now that the possibilities for maneuvering in the Church are lessened somewhat, I’m hoping that he will have a change of heart and spill his guts on the mafia here in the USA, overseas, and particularly in Rome. I’ll ask him. I have his address as of a couple of days ago, when he was released from prison to home confinement for the rest of his sentence. There are many implications to all this.
