Editor’s Note: Cardinal Gerald Lacroix, Archbishop of Quebec City, Canada, has just become the highest Vatican official ever to be accused of sexual abuse of a minor. This should be front page news on all Catholic outlets by this afternoon. — This is more egg in the face of the Bergoglian pontificate and shows what kind of men he has the proclivity to promote.
The Council of Cardinals is Pope Francis’ Administrative Body of the highest level for giving him advice on how to govern. Thus Cardinal Lacroix holds a position analogous to a Cabinet position in a parliamentarian government.
Here is the Cardinal’s ecclesiastical career in profile from Catholic-Hierarchy.Org:
His principal consecrator is Cardinal Ouellet, who is also being sued for sexual abuse of minors.
