Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley wants Vatican officials to read a series of investigative reports chronicling alleged mismanagement in the Diocese of Buffalo, where Bishop Richard Malone, a former auxiliary bishop in Boston, is facing calls to step down over his handling cases of clergy sexual abuse.
An investigative reporter for WKBW, Charlie Specht, sent his three-part series about Bishop Malone to Cardinal O’Malley, who heads the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. Those reports contend that Bishop Malone did not take seriously allegations of impropriety made against two priests and that he allowed them to stay in ministry. The bishop is also accused of not being forthcoming about the number of priests who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse. The diocese initially reported the number to be 42, but it may be higher than 100.
