Cardinal Wuerl replaced Cardinal Burke on the Congregation for Bishops in 2013.
Cardinal Cupich was also appointed to the Congregation by Pope Francis in 2016.
Wuerl and Cupich are playing a large role in the selection of Bishops, particularly American Bishops. (Thread)
It is an absolute outrage that these men have not been immediately removed from their posts in light of the very credible allegations made against both of them in the Vigano letter.
I hadn't even realized until today that both of these men were a part of the Congregation for Bishops! Sadly, nothing surprises me any more.
This rooted corruption in the Church is not going anywhere when left to these dishonest shephards - these very same men who are responsible for selecting the next generation of the same! Faithful Catholics must DEMAND a proper response by Pope Francis.
Get. These. Snakes. Out.
(For those not up to speed on how the selection of Bishops works, after the papal nuncio in each country selects a number of candidates for the Episcopacy, the Congregation for Bishops ratifies the final list for the Pope to decide on...
Though all of the members vote on each nominated candidate, there is usually deferral to the representatives from the same region as the nominee, meaning these American appointees wield huge deciding power. Aka, Wuerl and Cupich!)
