“We’ve been criticized a lot over the years, but, I’m happy to tell you Mark, as you already know, the Vatican did a review of our work. They do very often with different ministries, what they call a visitation. It’s a positive way that they come alongside and they help the ministries in the church to become stronger,” the national director of Priests for Life stated.
“So they did a visitation, issued a report, and it was all very positive.
They gave us a clean bill of health with our finances, with our organizational structure.
Gave us some good words of encouragement about how valuable the work is to the church. So, I’m happy to reassure our supporters of that.”
“This is what we’ve been saying since day one”, Crutcher stated, “Basically, as I read the report, and I understood it, they’re basically saying there was absolutely no basis for ever having made the accusations, that there was any kind of financial impropriety.”
“And there weren’t even any specific allegations,” Fr. Frank said, “It was all this raising of doubt – oh – we’re not sure we’re not sure….Well now you can be sure!” he said.
