The Pope thinks that his strategy of ignoring any criticism will work yet again:
‘I will not say a single word on this,’ Pope Francis told reporters on board the papal plane from Dublin to Rome
Pope Francis has dismissed claims from a former Vatican ambassador that he was made aware of sexual misconduct allegations against Archbishop Theodore McCarrick.
Francis urged members of the media to make a judgment about an explosive document released by Archbishop Carlo Vigano but that he will not respond to what it alleges.
“I will not say a single word on this,” he told reporters on board the papal plane from Dublin to Rome. “I believe the statement speaks for itself. And you have the journalistic capacity to draw your own conclusions.”
During an in-flight press conference lasting 44 minutes, the Pope said he had read Archbishop Vigano’s 11-page testimony on Sunday morning, adding “I must tell you sincerely that, I must say this, to you and all those who are interested, read the statement carefully and make your own judgment.”
Francis then added to the journalist who asked the question on the flight: “I await your comment on the document, I would like that.”
