In the wake of the Theodore McCarrick scandal, the release of the Pennsylvania grand jury report, and the Testimony of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, some may be interested in writing to the Apostolic Nuncio in Washington, DC, to express their concern and request action. Addresses and suggested points to mention in your letter are provided below.
Be sure to mention that you realize the problem goes much deeper than sexual deviancy in the hierarchy and clergy, and that it includes theological and liturgical deviancy as well. See here and here.
You may want to request some or all of these points:
- The removal of Donald Wuerl as Archbishop of Washington, DC, and his expulsion from the College of Cardinals;
- The removal of Blaise Cupich as Archbishop of Chicago, and his expulsion from the College of Cardinals;
- The removal of Joseph Tobin as Archbishop of Newark, and his expulsion from the College of Cardinals;
- The removal of Robert McElory as Bishop of San Diego;
- The release of the 300 page report prepared under Pope Benedict XVI detailing sodomite infiltration of the Vatican and the Church; and
- The resignation of Jorge Bergoglio.
Finally, it is recommended that you inform the Nuncio that you will pray for him, the Pope, bishops, priests, and the Church, as well as the victims. You are encouraged to offer reparation to Almighty God, as well.
