The Powers of Darkness in Rome
By Cliff Kincaid – August 17, 2020
Washington, D.C. Monsignor Paul Dudziak, the Pastor of St. Stephen Martyr, blew the whistle on a sexual cover-up in the Roman Catholic Church and made these astonishing comments: “The church is now engaged in a cover-up of the predatory sexual activity and corrupting practices of Theodore McCarrick, who once served as our archbishop, who has now been thrown out of the priesthood. But who promoted him? Who protected him? Who he paid off? None of that has been revealed though it is known; it is in a report. But the Powers of Darkness in Rome keep us from knowing and it is not right.”
In a subsequent homily, he referred to McCarrick having “bribed his way into office in the church passing out packets of money in Rome.” He once again referred to a report on this scandal that has not been released, explaining, “There’s a report – it names names. It’s not being released in Rome. The Powers of Darkness have kept it from seeing the light. And the Catholic people need to demand its release.”
He added, “We need to challenge our bishops. Our bishops need to say to Rome – until that report is released, unabridged and unedited, not one single nickel will be sent to Rome from America. If they said that on Monday, on Tuesday the report would be released. And then let the chips fall where they may. Our bishops need to prove they are not just corporate executives sprinkled with a little holy water but they are disciples of Jesus Christ with the courage to act as disciples.”
Informed of Monsignor Dudziak’s comments, columnist Matt Abbott said they are spot on. However, he said, “Regarding the report on McCarrick, if it does get released to the public, I fear it will be mostly whitewashed information. Thus, I think there’s a strong possibility that concerned Catholics will be disappointed by the report’s findings.”
Dudziak said there is much good in the church and cites several examples but notes that the evidence of corruption cannot be ignored. “When I graduated from high school 61 years ago, entered the seminary and then the priesthood, I never imagined that the church could be as corrupt as the church has proven to be,” he said.
