Vigano vs the Vatican

The Uncensored Testimony of the Italian Journalist who Helped Break the Story


About this item

In an explosive August 2018 document, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò implicated many Catholic bishops – and Pope Francis himself – in a decades-long cover-up of the sexual crimes of the now-disgraced serial predator, former cardinal Theodore McCarrick, long the most powerful figure in the American Church.

Shocking faithful Catholics worldwide, Pope Francis refused to deny the accusations that Archbishop Viganò made against him in that ten-page document.

Stunned himself, Marco Tosatti, the Italian journalist who first broke the story of the cover-up, here recounts the whole sordid tale. In this alarming report, you will learn of McCarrick's long-time abuses of seminarians and young priests, his inexplicable promotions to the highest ranks in the Church (despite widespread knowledge of his crimes), and the scandalous cover-up that has traumatized the Catholic world and continues to this day.

Among the things you'll find here:

DOCUMENTED: Decades of warnings sent to the Vatican about the predator McCarrick – warnings that Church officials brushed aside

DETAILED: Archbishop Viganò's private 2013 meeting with the pope, detailing McCarrick's sexual abuse of seminarians and young priests

BAFFLING: The refusal of Pope Francis to deny Viganò's claims, or even to comment

NAMED: Other clerical miscreants the pope has appointed to high Vatican offices

THE PAYOFFS: The millions of dollars the Church has spent to silence McCarrick's victims

IDENTIFIED: The one and only point the Vatican MUST explain – but thus far will not

REVEALED: The real source of the rot at the top levels of the Church

It is all here – the names, dates, and damning documents – details that lead many to conclude, with Archbishop Viganò, that far from finally drawing to a close, the cover-up of clerical sexual crimes continues apace and appears to reach the very highest offices of Holy Mother Church.

Clear, Concise, and Informative
Tosatti’s work pieces together the fragments of a very complex and multi-faceted issue that has unfolded over the course of several years and presents it with the clarity of a coherent narrative organized around the series of open letters published by Archbishop Vigano. Although the book’s account of the abuse crisis confronts us with disturbing details—namely, its scandalous cover-up by the Church hierarchy—I believe this book is helpful in exposing the Church’s deepest and most infected wounds, which is the first step on the path to healing and purification.
