Vatican Awaits Developments as It Investigates Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga and Honduras’ Catholic University

National Catholic Register, Edward Pentin:

A Vatican investigation into one of Pope Francis’ closest aides and the rector of the Catholic University of Honduras over alleged mismanagement of the university’s finances and personnel has currently stalled as the Vatican awaits more information, the Register has learned.

The Pope ordered the investigation last year after repeated complaints were made against Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga of Tegucigalpa and the rector, Deacon Elio Alvarenga Amador, following their attempt to remove the Church’s ownership of the Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic University of Honduras, and turn it into an independently run non-governmental organization.
