CWN Editor's Note: In September, Pope Francis granted Cardinal Rainer Mari Woelki of Cologne a leave of absence following an investigation into how he handled abuse allegations. The investigation found failures in communication, but no evidence of a cover-up.
In addition to the newly announced Vatican investigation, Cardinal Woelki faces an archdiocesan investigation for awarding significant contracts to lawyers and communications advisors without the consultation with diocesan bodies required by canon law.
