MEDIA ADVISORY, Nov. 9, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- Vatican expert George Weigel is available to discuss the McCarrick report and consistory of 13 new cardinals.

    WHAT: The McCarrick report, more than a years' worth of investigation into the disgraced former Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, whom Pope Francis expelled from the priesthood last year after a Vatican investigation found him guilty of sexual crimes against minors and adults and abuse of power, is scheduled to be released by the Vatican tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 10. Additionally, Pope Francis will create 13 new cardinals on Nov. 28 at the consistory of new cardinals.

    WHO: George Weigel, author of THE NEXT POPE, released earlier this year, is available for comment on both topics. He is a Distinguished Senior Fellow of Washington's Ethics and Public Policy Center and New York Times bestselling author of two dozen books, including the two volumes of his internationally acclaimed biography of Pope St. John Paul II, Witness to Hope and The End and the Beginning, and his memoir, Lessons in Hope: My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II.

    WHEN: Weigel is available for interviews now. He is based in Washington, D.C.

ABOUT THE NEXT POPE: Drawing on his personal discussions with John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis, as well as his decades of experience with Catholics from every continent, George Weigel examines the major challenges confronting the Catholic Church and its 1.3 billion believers in the twenty-first century: challenges the next pontificate must address as the Church enters new, uncharted territory. To what is the Holy Spirit calling this Church-in-transition? What are the qualities needed in the man who will lead the Church from the Chair of Saint Peter? Taking lessons from the pontificates of John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis, Weigel proposes what the Catholic leaders of the future, especially the next pope, must do to remain faithful to the Holy Spirit's summons to renewed evangelical witness, intensified missionary fervor and Christ-centered reform in the wake of grave institutional failures, mission confusion, counter-witness and the secularist challenge to biblical faith.
