A Catholic archbishop and former Holy See ambassador was defrocked after being convicted of sexually abusing teenage boys, making him the most senior Vatican figure to be punished for such a crime. Read more:

Today I read a report about the two-week Vatican synod and bring from it just one sentence:

"Arch-conservative Catholics, many from the U S and Africa, complained the meeting was stage-managed to approve liberal reforms."

The leadership of that man-made church has now been taken over by the people of Sodom and Gomarrha and they are now stage-managing to take over the entire church.

From now on only those will be promoted to bishops and cardinals who, "giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

That is from Jude 7.

Now follow extracts from another article:

 

Pope Francis to investigate 'playboy priests' who posed naked online in scandal-hit disocese

A Catholic church representative is to probe the 'black sheep' diocese of Albenga-Imperia for alleged sexual harassment of parishioners and involvement in pornography

Bishop Mario Oliveri has run “the most gossiped about diocese in Italy” for over a quarter of a century

A scandal-ridden Catholic diocese in Italy where priests posted naked photos of themselves on gay websites, raided church coffers and sexually harassed parishioners is to be investigated by a special envoy to Pope Francis.

The Pope reportedly intends to send an “apostolic administrator” to assess allegations that the diocese of Albenga-Imperia, in the Liguria region of northern Italy, has hosted a string of “playboy priests” moon-lighting as barmen, stealing parish funds and getting tattooed.

Described by one Italian newspaper as “the most gossiped about diocese in Italy”, it has been run for the last 25 years by Bishop Mario Oliveri, 70.

The bishop himself is not accused of any wrongdoing, but is reported to have been overly-charitable in recruiting “black sheep” priests with distinctly chequered pasts, including trainee priests expelled from seminaries for misconduct.

They include a priest who was found guilty of organising an under-age prostitution ring and others who posted nude photos of themselves on Facebook and gay websites.

Priests in the diocese have been accused of sexually harassing parishioners, living with gay partners and stealing Communion money.

Father Luciano Massaferro, for instance, a parish priest, was sentenced to nearly eight years in prison after being found guilty of sexually abusing an altar boy. He had been strenuously defended by the bishop.

In July, in an unprecedented move sanctioned by the Pope, a Catholic archbishop and former Holy See ambassador was defrocked after being convicted of sexually abusing teenage boys, making him the most senior Vatican figure to be punished for such a crime.

Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who was the Vatican’s nuncio to the Dominican Republic, was found guilty of sex abuse by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

He is now under houses arrest, pending the outcome of criminal proceedings launched by Vatican judicial authorities.

He has been charged with sexual abuse of minors and possession of child pornography.

He is expected to be put on trial before a Vatican tribunal early next year and if convicted faces up to seven years in jail.
