Vatican defends pope against 'blasphemous' cover-up allegations
Since he was elected in 2013 Francis has made clear that he believes the devil to be real

Like many people in the church, Cardinal Ouellet asked: "How is it possible that this man of the church, whose incoherence has now been revealed, was promoted many times, and was nominated to such a high position as archbishop of Washington and cardinal?"
The archbishop had issued an open letter to Cardinal Ouellet in late September urging him to tell what he knew about now-Archbishop McCarrick.
In it, Cardinal Ouellet both defended the pope and criticised Archbishop Vigano, asserting that the conservative cleric had used the scandal over sexual abuse in the United States to score ideological points with Francis' critics on the Catholic right.
Pope Francis has met the president of the U.S. bishops' conference as his supporters closed ranks over the pontiff's handling of allegations of sexual misconduct by a USA cardinal. I understand that bitterness and delusions have been a part of your journey in service to the Holy See, but you can not conclude your priestly life in this way, in open and scandalous rebellion, which is inflicting a very painful wound on the Bride of Christ, whom you claim to serve better, thus aggravating the division and confusion in the People of God!

"Repent of your revolt", the cardinal wrote before asking, "How can you celebrate the holy Eucharist and pronounce his (the pope's) name in the canon of the Mass?"
Cardinal Ouellet's letter was issued a day after Francis authorised a "thorough study" of all Vatican archives into how McCarrick rose through the ranks of the Catholic Church despite allegations he sexually preyed on seminarians and young priests.
The Vatican itself explained October 6: "The Holy See is conscious that, from the examination of the facts and of the circumstances, it may emerge that choices were taken that would not be consonant with a contemporary approach to such issues".
The first formal sanctions on Archbishop McCarrick were imposed by Pope Francis in June after an investigation found credible allegations of the sexual abuse of minors.
Ouellet pointed out that the June 2013 meeting occurred as Francis was meeting with all his ambassadors for the first time and was gathering an "enormous quantity of verbal and written information" about the church.
The letter notes that Francis "had nothing to do" with McCarrick's career, nor have I ever "heard Pope Francis allude to this self-styled advisor during his pontificate regarding nominations in America [.] I presume that they are not preferred by you or by those friends who support your interpretation of the facts". "I strongly doubt that McCarrick interested him as much as you would like us to believe, given the fact that he was an 82-year-old archbishop emeritus who had been without a post for seven years".
Cardinal DiNardo said he and all the USA bishops "offer our prayers and solidarity for the Holy Father".
The cardinal said a review of his files showed there were no documents about any sanctions imposed on McCarrick and that it was "false" to suggest Francis had annulled any such measures. "After re-examining the archives, I certify that there are no such documents signed by either pope".
