SPIRITED THINKING SINCE 1888
Vatican abuse trial
May 13, 2021
Witnesses contradicted themselves and each other on Wednesday, when they gave evidence in a trial dealing with charges of abuse and coverup at the Saint Pius X minor seminary -- a college for boys aged 12 to 18 years, who are considering the priesthood and serve at papal events in St. Peter’s Basilica -- in the Vatican.  
April 15, 2021
The priests who testified on Wednesday are Frs. Angelo Magistrelli, Enzo Pacelli, and Luigi Portarulo. They all appeared to cast doubt on the testimony of a key witness: former Saint Pius X seminarian Kamil Jarzembowski, whose claims regarding the climate and culture of the institution have contributed to public scrutiny and been a focal point of the criminal proceedings.
