Group Replaces Controversial Cardinal For D.C. Mass

Play associated audio

WASHINGTON (AP) A group is seeking another bishop to celebrate a special Mass at the nation's largest Roman Catholic church after advocates for victims of sexual abuse by priests objected to a retired Vatican cardinal.

Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos had been scheduled to celebrate the Latin Mass on Saturday at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in honor of the fifth anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI's inauguration.

The Paulus Institute agreed Wednesday to find a replacement after the victims' group objected to Castrillon Hoyos, who wrote a letter in 2001 congratulating a French bishop for shielding a priest convicted of raping minors.

The Paulus Institute says it stands with sexual abuse victims but has no information concerning the cardinal.
