Vatican Will Rule Next Week On Fate Of US Cardinal

Vatican officials will meet next week to decide what they will do about former U.S. cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who has been accused of sexual abuse.

Reuters reports Vatican sources told Reuters last month that McCarrick will almost certainly be dismissed from priesthood.

According to a public Vatican schedule, the Vatican department that will rule on the case met Pope Francis on Thursday.

The Vatican did not say what was discussed Francis will have to sign off on any dismissal decision.

Sources say he wants the McCarrick case to be over before heads of national Catholic churches meet at the Vatican on Feb.

21 to discuss the sexual abuse crisis.

The allegations against McCarrick date back to decades ago.

He has responded publicly to only one allegation and said he has “absolutely no recollection” of allegedly sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy more than 50 years ago.
