The appointment of Cardinal Mahony as a special papal representative at the celebration had provoked protests because of the cardinal’s mishandling of sex-abuse allegations during his tenure as Archbishop of Los Angeles. The Scranton diocese has announced that the retired cardinal “is unable to attend the Mass” for the March 4 celebration.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
