Viganò's Statement: "Francis himself is Covering Up Abuse" confirmed in 2017 Italian Abuse Network Report

The "Pope's altar boy" sex abuse allegations cover-up of Francis and his Vatican which was just divulged by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, as reported on LifeSiteNews, was a "bomb exploded" report that the Italian sex abuse network Rete Abuso revealed in 2017.
(LifeSiteNews, "New Viganò testimony: Vatican covered up allegations of sexual abuse of Pope's altar boys," July 3, 2019)

The Rete Abuso President Francesco Zanardi wrote:

"From the legal point of view, a bomb exploded at the home by Pope Francis, who this time will not be able to hide behind any excuse, because the legal competence of the alleged [sex abuse] crime... occurred in the Vatican City State... [where is] the 'zero tolerance' so much acclaimed in the pontificate of Bergoglio."
(, "Don Gabriele Marinelli is the priest accused of abuse in the minor seminary in Vatican. Bergoglio is consistent and transparent," November 15, 2017)

The Italian newspaper il Giornale in 2017 gave an account:

"[A] priest, accused of sexual harassment in the shadow of the Vatican would be Don Gabriele Marinelli...  Il Giorno, seems to confirm:... ''The Chiavennasco, who in July was ordained [a] priest... was accused of being a seminarian who... [had] non-consenting relationships with at least one boy a little younger than him, who at the time of the first alleged episode was only 13 years old.'"
(il Gionrnale, "Priest accused of sexual harassment in the Vatican, that's who he is," November 20, 2017)

Il Giorno reported in 2017:

"The accusations made by at least two young people against a 25-year-old priest born in Chiavenna... [at] Saint Pius X Preseminary in the Vatican. And it was precisely the pre-school where the altar boys at the Pope's service were trained... "

"... The Chiavennasco, who was ordained a priest by Bishop Oscar Canton in July... The eyewitness also reported that he reported the incident to the bishop of Como before the young man was ordained a priest. And the Diocese of Como yesterday entrusted to the note the response to the accusations made not only to the young priest, but to the diocese itself, which would turned a blind eye to the harassment."

In the July 3 LifeSiteNews article, Viganò is reported to have said:

"Pope Francis himself is covering up abuse right now, as he did for McCarrick. I say this with great sorrow."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
