At the press conference announcing the 2023 Rome Life Forum, attorney Liz Yore provided a shocking list of grievances experienced by victims of clerical sex abuse during Pope Francis’ pontificate. Yore contends that Pope Francis actively extends mercy and honor to clerical sexual predators — such as former cardinal Theodore McCarrick and disgraced Fr. Marko Rupnik — while ignoring the grave concerns expressed by clerical sex abuse survivors. Watch her speech at the LifeSite press conference as she outlines in powerful detail how Pope Francis continues to protect clerical sex abusers. Faithful Catholics have a right to know.
‘I brought the charges in this matter, in the hope of finding justice in this court. Instead, McCarrick walks a free man and I am left with nothing,’ wrote James Grein, who at age 11 was McCarrick’s first victim. ‘Nothing except the continuing fear of the twice-threatened retaliation.’
Speaking to Catholic Family News editor Matt Gaspers, the Italian prelate said that this particular cardinal is not speaking publicly 'so as not to break the Pontifical secret', but that in fact he has already broken the Pontifical secret by talking about it in private conversations.
