ROME February 16, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The Vatican today announced that ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has been stripped of the clerical state for crimes against minors and adults, with no possibility for appeal. In a brief statement issued on Saturday morning, the Vatican said at the conclusion of the penal process, the Congresso — a weekly meeting of superiors and officials of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith — “issued a decree finding Theodore Edgar McCarrick, archbishop emeritus of Washington, D.C., guilty of the following delicts while a cleric: solicitation in the Sacrament of Confession, and sins against the Sixth Commandment with minors and with adults, with the aggravating factor of the abuse of power.” “The Congresso imposed on him the penalty of dismissal from the clerical state,” it said.

The CDF issued the decree on Jan. 11, 2019, but McCarrick appealed the decision. In a meeting earlier this week, CDF officials “examined the arguments in the recourse,” but “confirmed the decree of the Congresso,” finding McCarrick guilty of the aforementioned crimes. McCarrick was notified of this decision on Friday, February 15, 2019, the statement said. It added that Pope Francis has “recognized the definitive nature of this decision made in accord with law, rendering it a res iudicata (i.e., admitting of no further recourse).”

The CDF’s full statement reads:

On 11 January 2019, the Congresso of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, at the conclusion of a penal process, issued a decree finding Theodore Edgar McCarrick, archbishop emeritus of Washington, D.C., guilty of the following delicts while a cleric: solicitation in th Sacrament of Confession, and sins against the Sixth Commandment with minors and with adults, with the aggravating factor of the abuse of power. The Congresso imposed on him the penalty of dismissal from the clerical state. On 13 February 2019, the Ordinary Session (Feria IV) of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith considered the recourse he presented against this decision. Having examined the arguments in the recourse, the Ordinary Session confirmed the decree of the Congresso. This decision was notified to Theodore McCarrick on 15 February 2019.The Holy Father has recognized the definitive nature of this decision made in accord with law, rendering it a res iudicata (i.e., admitting of no further recourse).

Theodore McCarrick was ordained to the priesthood in New York City in 1958. He was consecrated bishop in 1977, becoming an auxiliary of the archdiocese of New York, under then-Cardinal Terence Cooke. McCarrick rose through the episcopal ranks, becoming bishop of Metuchen, New Jersey in 1981, Archbishop of Newark in 1986 and Archbishop of Washington, D.C., in 2000. Pope John Paul created him a cardinal in 2001. It was in the early 1970s, while serving as a priest in New York City, that McCarrick is alleged to have groped an adolescent altar boy in St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It was that accusation which launched the internal investigation by Church authorities. In June 2018, the Archdiocese of New York announced allegations that McCarrick molested an underage altar boy decades ago had been deemed “credible and substantiated.”

At the time of the accusations, McCarrick maintained he had “absolutely no recollection of this reported abuse and believe in my innocence.” Since then, other alleged victims including former seminarians and priests have come forward to detail the sexual abuse to which McCarrick subjected them. McCarrick’s most well known victim, James Grein, has also come forward and said McCarrick abused him for years starting when he was 11 years old. In July 2018, Pope Francis accepted McCarrick’s resignation from the College of Cardinals and ordered him to “a life of prayer and penance until the accusations made against him are examined in a regular canonical trial.” He has been living in at a friary in Kansas next to an elementary school. Numerous Catholics have called for McCarrick to be laicized.

The correct term for “defrocking” or “laicization” in canon law is “dismissal from the clerical state.” Canonists say the punishment meted out to McCarrick technically does not mean that he is no longer a priest or a bishop, as priestly and episcopal ordination indelibly mark the soul of the man ordained. But McCarrick, 88, can no longer exercise any priestly duties, including the celebration of the Mass, hearing Confessions, etc.

Poster Comment:

He was previously defrocked. This is the cardinal who not only abused teen boys (pederasty) but also engaged in sexual abuse and homosexual relations with adult seminarians. The liberals in the Catholic church, mainline Protestant churches and liberals in general are up in arms about the report on McCarrick. Why? Because we are told by the leftist propaganda that homosexual adult males are not pedophiles or pederasts.
