Cardinal Dolan conducting ‘Vos estis’ investigation into Brooklyn bishop

New York City, N.Y., Jan 18, 2020 / 09:05 pm (CNA).- Cardinal Timothy Dolan is conducting an investigation into Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, following an allegation of sexual abuse. The investigation is being conducted under the provisions of Vos estis lux mundi, the new law issued by Pope Francis last year on dealing with accusations against bishops.

In a statement released Jan. 18, Joseph Zwilling, Director of Communications for the Archdiocese of New York, confirmed the investigation.

“As directed by Vos Estis, Cardinal Dolan earlier notified the Holy See of the allegation that was raised concerning Bishop DiMarzio from his time as a priest in the Archdiocese of Newark. On January 7, 2020, the Cardinal received instruction from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that he is to begin an investigation.”

We have Royal Responsibilities

Homily As Catholics we do have to have a real understanding of what royalty means. We are all royalty! With that we have royal responsibilities. Jesus came, among other things, to establish the Kingdom of God.

We pray the Our Father. Let your Kingdom come, on earth.  This means we have something to do while we are here to help make the Kingdom of God manifest. It is a prayer of responsibility. The prayer echoes our Psalm today “Here I am Lord. I’ve come to do your will.” I am part of the Lord’s Royal Court.

Praise the Lord
