The Figueiredo Report

Hospitality workers, secretaries and personal assistant's all  see  the private side of the people they work for and I was reminded of all this when I finished reading the Figueriedo Report.  Monsignor Anthony J. Figueiredo was then Cardinal McCarrick's secretary for many years. The correspondence shown therein shines a harsh light on Cardinal Wuerl's claim that he knew nothing about Cardinal McCarrick being told to get out of the Mater Dei seminary, stop making public appearances, diplomatic travel and turn to silent penance. Benedict's restrictions were weak and Uncle Ted defied them almost immediately but they did exist and were known about.
