Viganò testimony

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • In a 2018 statement regarding the Vigano testimony, Bishop Wack wrote that these “credible allegations” were “truly tragic and discouraging.” He also called for more lay-involvement in the process. However, Wack did not praise Vigano or call for an investigation into the allegations made against McCarrick and those accused of covering up McCarrick’s actions.

Amoris Laetitia

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • In 2016, then-Fr. Wack retweeted an article written by pro-“LGBT” priest Fr. James Martin titled “Top 10 takeaways from Amoris Laetitia.” The article supports the idea that divorced and remarried Catholics should use their “internal forum” to determine their level of “participation” in the Church. Martin also writes that this “participation” traditionally means “the reception of Communion.” (Twitter)
