CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has apparently taken no action on accusations against an influential Honduran bishop, the National Catholic Register reports. Bishop Juan José Pineda Fasquelle, an auxiliary of Archdiocese of Tegucigalpa, has been charged with the sexual abuse of seminarians. He is also involved in the receipt of over $1 million in government funds, for which no accounting is available.

The case of Bishop Pineda is particularly sensitive because he is a deputy to Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, who chairs the Council of Cardinals, and has taken over responsibility for the Tegucigalpa archdiocese during the cardinal’s frequent absences.
