He blamed Cardinal Bertone, his old rival, for the delay
Archbishop Viganò said that he had personally met Cardinal McCarrick, then-Cardinal, to remind him at his first meeting after his arrival in the country United States Under Sanction
"The cardinal muttered in a barely comprehensible way that perhaps he had made the mistake of sleeping in the same bed with some seminarians in his beach house," he writes.
After meeting Cardinal McCarrick In April 2014, at the Vatican Pope's residence and Archbishop Viganò, who listened to American pride in his freedom of travel, he wrote to Cardinal Parolin, Secretary of State and top consultant to Francis asked if the sanctions were still in force.
"Despite Archbishop Viganó's memorandum, during his time in Washington Cardinal Wuerl received no documents or information about any action against Archbishop McCarrick," said Ed McFadden, a spokesman for Cardinal Wuerl, on Sunday.
Some survivors of clerical abuse described the allegations as a distraction.
"This is a dispute between curial factions exploiting the abuse crisis and victims of sexual abuse by clergy as a lever in the struggle for church power," said Peter Isely, a survivor. "The sexual abuse crisis is not about whether a bishop is liberal or conservative, it's about protecting children."

At the beginning of this Mass, the Pope solemnly asked forgiveness for the sins and abuses of the Church to hundreds of thousands of believers. "Some members of the hierarchy were no match for these painful situations," he said. "And he was silent."
