The case was under investigation by Joseph Card. Ratzinger during his time as prefect of the CDF. Meanwhile, Servant of God Pope John Paul II died and Ratzinger was given a new job.
Now, William Cardinal Levada as prefect of the CDF, after reviewing all of the material in question and due to reasons of Fr. Marcial’s advanced age, has opted to forego the canoncial hearing and invited Fr. Marcial to a “reserved life of penitence and prayer, relinquishing any form of public ministry”. Pope Benedict XVI approved the decision.
Now, I’m awaiting a response from the Legionaries.
