There is at least one other victim of McCarrick who has not come forward publicly. Recently, at my own expense, I personally brought his case to the Holy Father, bypassing all dicasteries, bypassing the “abuse office” in the CDF, bypassing the Secretariat of State, bypassing the Pontifical Family. I’ve not hidden that fact. The case stunningly confirms timelines, that is, not because it was written up post-Viganò’s open letters, but because immutable facts and immutable consequences and the people involved back in the day also at the nunciature in these USA are immediately available for examination and consultation. This guy knows non-publicized details that only a few individuals know about, who are stunned at the knowledge of the details that couldn’t possibly otherwise have been known by him.
The request of Archbishop Viganò is that anyone able to confirm his testimony publicly do so. So, that request, in part, comes directly to me. The victim is very much considering coming forward publicly. We did put it all before the Holy Father, but…
Here’s the deal: The Holy Father is purposely having this played out in the media. Pope Francis is really good at politics. Unbeatable. He may be letting the likes of Cardinal Ouellet hang himself. Fine. And he would look to be the fool should the case I brought to the Holy Father be publicized in fine detail.
But that’s not enough. This isn’t about Archbishop Viganò being vindicated. It’s about solving the problem, right? So, let’s just say it:
There are other people, other matters. We’re getting to the heart of it all.
I wish I could consult first of all in a private meeting with Archbishop Viganò. If anyone knows how I might go about contacting some third party who might be able to set up such a meeting – I can go anywhere, anytime, quietly – please drop me a line in an email or, if you don’t know that, in the moderated comments of this post (my eyes only).
Let me say that again addressing him personally:
What you’ve done on one level sets up bringing this entire matter to another level altogether. There are matters not yet mentioned which would bring this entire decades old scandal full circle, going to the very heart of the matter. I can’t mention those publicly right now. I need your help. I’m depending on you. The two matters I brought to the Holy Father confirming your letters are merely a preliminary. There is so much more, much more devastating, much more cleansing, much more preparatory for evangelizing about Jesus among seminarians, priests and bishops. I repeat: I need your help; I’m depending on you. Might we meet discretely? I ask this in conscience.
In solidarity. Blessings upon you. I beg yours.
