It has been a wretched year for Pope Francis, whose blind spot on clergy ae conspired with events beyond his control to threaten his legacy and throw the Catholic hierarchy into a credility crisis not seen in modern times.
The latest development — a high-profile verdict in a far-away country — cements the impression that Francis simply didn’t “get it” when he became pope in 2013 and began leading the Church.
Early miss included ociating with compromised dinals and shops and downplaying or dismissing rumours of ae and cover-up. The Argentine pontiff finally came around in 2018, when he ly admitted he was wrong about a case in Chile, made amends, and laid the ground for the future by calling an ae prevention summit next year.
But damage to his moral authority on the issue has been done. Before his eyes were opened, Francis showed that he was a product of the very clerical culture he so often denounces, ever ready to take the word of the clerical cl over victims.
The year sted off well enough: Francis dedicated his annual anuary 1 peace message to the plight of migrants and refugees. Soon thereafter, he baptised 34 cooing baes in the Sistine Chapel and urged their s to , a typical Franciscan show of informal practicality amid the splendor of Michelangelo’s Last udgment.
Then came Chile.
Francis’ anuary visit was dominated by the clergy ae there, and featured unprecedented protests against a papal visit: churches were firebombed and riot used water cannons to quell dnstrations.
Chilean opposition to Francis had actually begun three years prior, when the Argentine pontiff appointed uan Barros as shop of the southern diocese of Osorno. Francis had dismissed allegations that Barros ignored and covered up ae by Chile’s most prominent predator priest, imposing him on a diocese that wanted nothing to do with him.
“The day they bring me proof against Bishop Barros, I’ll speak,” Francis said on his final day in Chile. “There is not one shed of proof against him. It’s all slander. Is that clear?”
Francis defended Barros because one of his s and advisers, Chilean Cardinal avier Errázuriz, defended Barros. Francis in 2013 had named Errázuriz to his inner circle, a formal parallel canet of nine dinals who meet every three months at the Vatican.
Chilean victims, though, had long charged that Errázuriz had been deaf to their claims while he was archshop of Santiago, giving cover to aers and their enablers. Francis disregarded the victims’ concerns and appointed Errázuriz to the high-profile canet post.
In the wake of his disastrous trip to Chile, Francis slowly came around to the victims’ view.
He ordered an in-depth investigation into the Chilean Church, admitted to “grave errors in judgment” and perally apologized to the victims he had discredited. He accused the Chilean leadership of creating a “culture of cover-up” and secured the resignations of every active shop there, Barros included. He vowed that the Catholic Church would “never again” hide ae, and earlier this month the Vatican announced Francis had fired Errázuriz from the canet.
Also rved was Cardinal George Pell, who left his post as the Vatican’s economy minister in une 2017 to stand trial for historical ae offenses in his native Australia. Like Errazuriz, Pell had been the target of ae victims’ ire for years, well before Francis bt him to the Vatican, given his prominent role in Australia and the church’s horrific record with ae there.
Both men deny wrongdoing. But their continued presence on the Council of Nine, as the canet is called, became a source of for the pope, who d them farewell in October with a letter thanking them for their service. For Pell, the C9 rval suggests he won’t resume at the Vatican since his five-year term expires early next year.
They are not the only dinals on the seat: the current archshop of Santiago is under investigation in a broad criminal inquiry into ae cover-up. Prosecutors in a dozen US states are investigating church files. A cover-up trial in France has two dinals as defendants, including the Spaniard who heads the Vatican that processes ae cases. The Holy See invoked sovereign immunity to spare Spain’s Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer. But it has no such power to protect Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, the archshop of Lyon, France, who is accused of failing to report a self-confessed aive priest to authorities. Francis has said French justice should take its course but has praised Barbarin as “brave.”
Despite such problems, with the Chile largely atoned for and decisions made to purge his inner circle of compromised members, Francis appeared by summer to be well on his way to steering himself out of the 2018 ae crisis.
Then round two hit.
‘Corrupted a generation’
In uly, Francis rved US Archshop Theodore McCarrick as a dinal after Church investigators said an allegation that he groped a age altar boy in the 1970s was credible. Subsequently, several former seminarians and priests reported that they too had been or hared by McCarrick as adults.
A month later, a grand jury report in Pennsylia revealed seven decades of ae and cover-up in six dioceses, with allegations that more than 1,000 children had been molested by about 300 priests. Most of the priests were dead, and the crimes far pre-dated Francis’ papacy.
But the comned created a crisis in confidence in the US and Vatican hierarchy. It was apparently common knowledge in the US and Vatican leadership that “Uncle Ted,” as McCarrick was known, slept with seminarians, and yet he still he rose undisturbed up the Church ranks.
Having rved McCarrick and approved a canonical trial against him, Francis should have emerged as the hero in the saga since he righted the wrong of St ohn Paul II, the pope from 1978-2005 who had promoted McCarrick to begin with and whose record on ae issues is far worse than Francis’ given his inaction.
But Francis’ get-tough victory lap was cut short when a former Vatican ambador to the US accused the pope himself of picipating in the McCarrick cover-up.
In an 11-page deciation in August, Archshop Carlo Maria Viganò claimed that Vatican officials from the top on down over the course of three pontificates had known about McCarrick’s penchant for seminarians, and turned a blind eye.
Viganò wrote that he had t Francis in 2013, at the st of his pontificate, that McCarrick had “corrupted a generation” of seminarians and priests and that Pope Benedict XVI had eventually sanctioned him for his ual misconduct. Viganò claimed Francis disregarded his 2013 warning and rehalitated McCarrick from those sanctions, making him a key adviser and entrusting him with delicate missions to China and elsewhere.
Francis never responded to Viganò’s laundry list of claims. Instead, the Argentine pontiff took to blaming the devil — “the Great Accuser” — for sowing division and discord in the church, an indirect jab at Viganò that only fuelled conservative outrage at Francis and demands that he come clean about what he k about McCarrick and when.
The Vatican didn’t help Francis’ standing any when, without providing any plausible rea, it blocked US shops from adopting accountality measures to try to restore trust with their flocks.
It now seems clear that Francis, at least at the st of his pontificate, was willing to overlook past ual misbehavior or cover-up claims if those responsible had atoned. He launched his pontificate with his famous “Who am I to judge” comment, about a priest whom he had appointed to a top advisory position despite allegations he had had a string of rs.
That comment, which won him plaudits from liberal Catholics and landed him on the cover of Advocate magazine, may now be his undoing. If he had judged his advisers more scrupulously at the st of his pontificate on their ae and cover-up records, he might have retained more credility in 2018.
