Monsignor Viganò Criticises Pagan Ritual Which He Attended Earlier without Complaint - Bishop

Monsignor James Powers, the Bishop of Superior, Wisconsin, has accused Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, a former nuncio to the United States (2011-2016), of "public defamation", reports (decree here). Monsignor Powers presided over a syncretistic Chrism Eucharist on 19 March, which included a shamanic ceremony in which several women danced around the Novus Ordo table with feathers and drum beats. Viganò called this a "sacrilegious act that desecrates the cathedral" and said that Mgr Powers was "not a successor of the Apostles, but a servant of Freemasonry" [although the event must be blamed entirely on the Novus Ordo Church, not on anyone else]. He further apostrophised Bishop Powers as "a squalid official of the ecumenical religion" and "a dutiful executor of Santa Marta's wishes". The accused defended himself by revealing that a similar shamanic ceremony had been performed at his installation as Bishop of Superior in 2016, adding that "Archbishop Viganò was present at that ceremony as Apostolic Nuncio in the United States and that in the last eight years he never expressed any concern about it." Now Mgr Powers wants to charge Archbishop Viganò with Can. 220, which concerns the right to good name and reputation, and expects a public apology, but it cannot be lost on Mgr Powers that canon law has become a paper tiger in the Novus Ordo Church. Furthermore, Bishop Powers accuses Viganò of having illicitly ordained the priest Bryan Walman (Father Ambrose) and sent him to the Hermitage of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Cumberland, Wisconsin, in Powers' diocese, where he lives with Rebekah Siegler (Sr. Tecla). Walman, according to Powers, "celebrates the sacraments in secret" and has refused to meet with Powers' vicar general. Strangely, Francis, who has no mercy for his critics, has never taken action against Monsignor Viganò. Source
