    Cardinal McCarrick secretly gave nearly $1 million to group led by cleric accused of sexual misconduct In the years before his removal from ministry, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick secretly gave nearly $1 million to a controversial group of Catholic missionaries and supported leniency for its founder after the Vatican punished him for sexual wrongdoing, internal church documents show. From 2004 to 2017, McCarrick sent the Institute of the Incarnate Word dozens of checks — some as large as $50,000 — from a charitable account he controlled at the Archdiocese of Washington, according to ledgers obtained by The Washington Post.

Investigative journalist George Neumayr comments in "All the Pope's Men": "We have seen time and time again clerics rise under Pope Francis not in spite of their corruption but because of it." The pope has within his gang of close advisers, Cdl. Óscar Maradiaga, Cdl. Oswald Gracias and Cdl. Reinhard Marx, among others. These three men hold to and promote teachings contrary to Church doctrines. Gracias, the archbishop of Bombay, India,...
