Cardinal Mahony in Rome for the conclave: resists pedophilia scandal
H.E. CARD. Roger Mahony
Cardinal Roger Mahony is in Rome and took part in the last Angelus of Benedict XVI. This was reported by the former Archbishop of Los Angeles on his blog and on his Twitter account. "Looking at St. Peter's Square – Cardinal Mahony who is involved in the scandal of pedophile priests in the U.S. wrote – “all have been able to observe a Pope more relaxed and full of hope.” The Holy Father today received heavy applause and before he started to talk he thanked everyone."
The archbishop arrived in the Eternal City despite the many pressures of those who wanted him to remain at home and not participate in the Conclave, such as the United Catholic association that has collected 9,000 signatures. The petition was delivered Saturday to St. Charles Borromeo in North Hollywood, where the cardinal resides. It was accepted by a church staff member." Days of history - says still on Twitter - it takes prayers."
