Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda on the Issues

Viganò testimony

Supports investigating Archbishop Viganò’s claims
  • In a statement released on the archdiocesan website, Hebda said he had “good reasons” to “trust” both Pope Francis and Archbishop Vigano but that he is “at a loss as to how to evaluate the claims that have been made by the Archbishop.” I “believe that some form of an independent review led by credible outsiders is the only way to resolve such situations and restore trust,” he said. “Regarding accountability for bishops around the world: I fully support engaging lay leadership.” (LifeSiteNews)

Amoris Laetitia

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • In 2018, Archbishop Hebda attended a conference at Boston College organized by staunch Amoris Laetitia supporter, Cardinal Cupich. The speakers at the gathering all had positive words to say about Amoris Laetitia. Archbishop Hebda attended and, when it was announced that Cardinal Wuerl of Washington D.C. would not be able to read the remarks he prepared for the conference, he stepped in and read what the Cardinal had written.
