Keep in mind that Mother Angelica publicly admonished then LA archbishop
Roger Mahoney, only to have the prelate perform bully tactics upon the well-
intentioned founder of EWTN. Well, a package of evidence was sent to the
EWTN people, concerning Donald Wuerl, to no avail. Yet, Donald Wuerl's
weekly TV show was dropped from the EWTN schedule long ago, whatever
had been the reason. However, Mother
Angelica no longer has the steering wheel of the network in her hands.
The letter posted below was the response of EWTN, after a package of
incriminating evidence was sent to it, concerning Donald Wuerl. It was
sent to EWTN years before Wuerl was to be transferred to DC. There-
fore, it was sent years before he was elevated to the College of Cardinals.
This shows that Wuerl's corruption was already known, yet nobody did
snything to stop it. Wuerl was elevated instead of disciplined, as if to have
been rewarded for his viciousness.
This teaches an important point:
The scandals of the church, as expert witness and author Richard Sipe
illustrated, started at the top. In the Fr. James Torquato retaliation, we
have a case in point where the cover-ups of the Vatican II church were
sustained be imposing fear upon the victims, advocates, and especiallly
whistle-blowers of those protected by corrupt bishops. The laity feared
being bullied by abusive bishops and priests. They feared undergoing
what a few of us were forced to endure during the Torquato Retaliation.
As a note, the papal nuncio was contacted during the first phase of the
Torquato Retaliations, and he said that he would do no more than con-
tact Donald Wuerl about it. It was equivalent to contacting the fox al-
ready in the chicken coup. Almost immediately after I contracted the
Papal Nuncio did the apartment bldg intrusion occur, and the hunt
for Torquato's accuser ratcheted upward a bit. I remember every
place where I was hiding the guy. Torquato and Wuerl put him
through a lot of trauma. No peace from Donald Wuerl.
Being an object of church retaliation during the tenure of John Paul II
meant that you were entirely unprotected, unless someone in secular
law enforcement or civil law would reach out to help you, and not
look the other way. The letter below is proof that the EWTN TV
network looked the other way, thereby negating its purpose for be-
ing on air. Such a thing was a sin of cooperation.
For the narration about the matter of Wuerl's cover-up of his former
For the record, this letter was an untold insult, being that it admitted
people in a position to give tremendous help ended up giving zero
help when it was needed.
