In a development in the case of Father George Rutler, the prominent priest-author-commentator released the following statement a few days ago to LifeSiteNews.com and other Catholic media outlets:
The case was covered late last year by various media outlets, including The New York Times.
The Archdiocese of New York’s communications office has not yet responded to my request for a statement on the matter.
I asked Rutler in an email if he thought the archdiocese would reinstate him to public ministry. He responded: “I am more than a year past retirement age and so I expect to retire.”© Matt C. Abbott
