Cd. Ouellet says Pope Francis had No "Interest" in Zero Tolerance for Predator McCarrick

Pope Francis collaborator Cardinal Marc Ouellet in an open letter admitted that ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was under punitive restrictions before Francis took office and that the present pope took no "interest" in zero tolerance for McCarrick even after he was informed of credible sex abuse allegations against the then cardinal by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò"

On October 7, The Wall Street Journal reported that senior Vatican official Cardinal Ouellet, head of the Vatican's office of bishop, admitted that ex-Cardinal McCarrick was under punitive restrictions before Francis took office:

Cardinal Ouellet "called the 'monstrous accusation' that Pope Francis ignored reports of sexual misconduct by a key cardinal, but confirmed a key point of the accusation: that the cardinal had been under punitive restrictions when the pope took office in 2013."

"... Ouellet acknowledged that Cardinal McCarrick had been 'forcefully exhorted not to travel and not to appear in public'... on account of 'rumors'... [that] didn't amount to formal 'sanctions' decreed by Pope Benedict XVI and annulled by Pope Francis."
(The Wall Street Journal, "Vatican Denounces Accusation Against Pope but Confirms Key Point," October 7, 2018)

Apparently, the senior Vatican official Ouellet is not only admitting that McCarrick was under punitive restrictions, but that Francis removed what he would call informal punitive restrictions on a serial sexual abuser and predator.

The senior Vatican official, also, admitted in his opinion that Francis wasn't "interested" that a senior Cardinal was a serial sexual abuser and predator. The pope, apparently, was so little "interested" in zero tolerance of clerical and bishop sexual abusers that he removed the informal punitive restrictions from the predator. The Wall Street article revealed:

"Archbishop Viganò has alleged that he informed Pope Francis about the U. S. cardinal's situation in June 2013... Ouellet didn't contradict the allegation, but replied: 'I strongly doubt that McCarrick interested [the pope]... he was an 82-year-old retired archbishop."

Finally, Ouellet is, apparently, incompetent or lied when he said "His [McCarrick's] case would have been the subject of new disciplinary measures if the nunciature in Washington, or any other source, had provided us with recent and decisive information about his behavior."
(National Catholic Register, "Cardinal Ouellet writes Open Letter to Archbishop Viganò," October 7, 2018)

"Decisive information" about McCarrick being a serial sex-abuser and predator was received by the Vatican from whistleblower Fr. Boniface Ramsay in 2000 according to the Associated Press as posted in the UK Daily Mail:

"A 2006 letter from Cardinal Leonardo Sandi, a top Vatican official confirms that the Holy See received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick."
(Daily Mail, "Letter confirms Vatican KNEW about sex abuse claims against Cardinal McCarrick's in 2000, September 7, 2018)

If Ouellet is not incompetent or lying he must explain why he didn't know about the Ramsey letter received by Cardinal Sandi.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
