Archbiship Listecki clarifies where mistakes were made

During his homily at the Chrism, His Excellency the Most Reverend Jerome Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee, stated that in the case of Lawrence Murphy mistakes were not made in Rome by then-Cardinal Ratzinger - as is clearly obvious from the evidence and documents readily available - but in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee itself:

Mistakes were made in the Lawrence Murphy case. The mistakes were not made in Rome in 1996, 1997 and 1998. The mistakes were made here, in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, in the 1970s, the 1980s and the 1990s, by the Church, by civil authorities, by Church officials, and by bishops. And for that, I beg your forgiveness in the name of the Church and in the name of this Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

  1. Archbishop Listecki was our diocesan bishop here in the Diocese of La Crosse for five years.
    I have had the privilege to work with him on several matters.
    He is a good man; a good bishop.
    His homily only proves his integrity, his compassion, his holiness.
    God bless him always!
