Jack McClure suspended from ministry by Cordileone

Theresa Kane’s message to Pope Francis

Pope Francis, although your formal titles are Holy Father and Supreme Pontiff, I take this sacred opportunity to greet you as a brother, a friend, a collaborator in our service to and with God and with others.
