Alleged Theodore McCarrick victim says he is helping fact-check abuse dossier
Description: An anonymous alleged sexual abuse victim of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick says he and other alleged victims have been working with the Vatican to fact-check the comprehensive dossier on McCarrick’s misdeeds. We get the details with JD Flynn and also look at what Archbishop Gregory knew about President Trump’s visit to the JPII Shrine.
JD Flynn is the Editor in Chief of Catholic News Agency and a canon lawyer. He previously served as a Special Assistant to Bishop Conley in the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Description: On June 11, 2001, Timothy McVeigh was executed for perpetrating the Oklahoma City bombing, which killed 168 people and injured hundreds more. He’s the first name that comes to mind when we talk of this horrible event, but we often neglect to look at his victims. Each had their own story, family, hopes, dreams and in many cases faith. Maria Scaperlanda shares their stories.
