Continue the Maciel Investigation sign now

Most Reverend Archbishop William J. Levada:

Please use your official authority as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to protect the reputation of your Congregation as well as the reputation of our Holy Father Benedict XVI in a matter that will have serious and lingering consequences for the Church in the United States, Mexico and around the world.

The statement, which was distributed by the Legionaries of Christ and picked up by news agencies world-wide, incorrectly stated that there was no investigation of child abuse charges against Fr. Marcial Maciel Delgollado and that there would be no future investigation into those charges.

Most Reverend Archbishop, this statement did not come from your congregation and the reaction to this statement as distributed by the Legionaries of Christ is causing great harm, confusion and scandal among the faithful.

We the undersigned, urgently request that the investigation into the alleged abuses of the Rev. Marcial Maciel Delgollado be allowed to continue to its conclusion. It is extremely important for the good of our Church that your Congregation is seen as doing everything possible to avoid any appearance that this investigation has been quashed because of powerful unseen forces.

We also ask, in light of the Legionnaires public distribution of an unofficial opinion, that you direct your Congregation to issue a public statement saying that no official determination has been made by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the closing of any possible investigation concerning sexual abuse charges against the Rev. Marcial Maciel Delgollado.

    Show that the Church heirarchy has really learned a lesson from covering up...it will be doubly damning if found to be not only true but covered up.
