One of the Organiser of Abuse Summit Accused of Covering Up Abuses

Pro-gay Mumbai Cardinal Oswald Gracias, one of the four organisers of Pope Francis' February abuse summit, is himself accused of covering up abuses by Virginia Saldanha, a former director of the women’s commission of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences.

Saldanha was involved in the arrest of Jalandha Bishop Franco Mulakkal who is alleged to have raped a nun 13 times.

She also gathered information about a priest who allegedly raped several women. Saldanha went to Cardinal Gracias and demanded action but he replied that he “was too busy” to care.

Only six months later, the priest was sent away from the parish.

According to (November 28) Saldanha made these revelations at a Tuesday abuse conference in Rome.
