Vatican’s investigation of Buffalo Diocese finishes first week with 30 interviews
By MARIAN HETHERLY | WBFO 88.7
MRT leader, John Hurley, is interviewed on WBFO concerning this week’s visitation by Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio to the Diocese of Buffalo.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11WBEN930, A NEW MORNING WITH SUSAN ROSE AND BRIAN MAZUROWSKI John Hurley from the Movement to Restore Trust joins WBEN to highlight the investigation by the Brooklyn Bishop into the Diocese of Buffalo.
The Vatican’s Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith defines an apostolic visitation as “an exceptional initiative of the Holy See which involves sending a Visitor or Visitors to evaluate an ecclesiastical institute such as a seminary, diocese, or religious institute. Apostolic Visitations are intended to assist the institute in question to improve the way in which it carries out its function in the life of the Church.”
Take a closer look at recent Apostolic visitations ordered in the United States…
The Vatican announced on Oct. 3 that it has appointed the Most Rev. Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn to lead an apostolic visitation for the troubled Diocese of Buffalo “in the near future.”
A year since Bishop Richard Malone’s assistant left her Chancery post to go public about the Buffalo prelate’s handling of abuse cases…the Holy See has finally moved to send in the cavalry on a “free-fall” situation which has only grown ever more untenable.
