Cdl McCarrick suspended after “credible” abuse allegations

The Archdiocese of New York announced Wednesday that an investigation it conducted into allegations of sexual abuse against Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who oversaw multiple major U.S. dioceses, has found the accusations to be “credible and substantiated.” The Vatican has been informed of the accusation, and, as a result, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, by order of Pope Francis, has prohibited Cardinal McCarrick from public ministry.
