US bishops in Rome ask Pope Francis about McCarrick report

"Bishop Boyea said he asked Pope Francis about the promised McCarrick report, and that the pope described it for them. He said that the bishops also discussed the report with the Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin.

Parolin is "a little more nervous about the reception of this in the public," Boyea added.

The Vatican announced that it would conduct a review of files on McCarrick in October 2018."
