Cardinal probed in alleged abuse cover-up headed to conclave


Vatican City, February 19 - American Cardinal
Roger Mahony who has come under fire for allegedly covering up
priest sex abuse posted a message on his Twitter account that
suggests he has every intention to participate in the upcoming
conclave to elect the next pope.
"Pray for us," he wrote, referring to the cardinals headed
for the conclave to vote in a successor to Pope Benedict XVI.
"Count-down to the Papal Conclave has begun. Your prayers
needed that we elect the best Pope for today and tomorrow's
Church," Mahony wrote.
The cardinal, who will be questioned under oath February 23
about how he handled Father Nicolas Aguilar Rivera, a visiting
Mexican priest who allegedly molested 26 children in the Los
Angeles archdiocese in 1987, said that he was planning on being
in Rome for the conclave.
On Monday, influential Catholic newspaper Famiglia
Cristiana launched an online poll asking if Mahony, the former
archbishop of Los Angeles, should participate in the conclave.
