Vatican City, Feb 6, 2020 / 12:20 pm
Pope Francis will make the final decision on when to publish a highly-anticipated report on former cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the Vatican's Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin said Thursday.
"I think that [the report] will come out soon, I cannot tell you exactly when," Parolin told a small group of journalists Feb. 6.
Speaking on the sidelines of a conference on holiness, the cardinal said "we are trying to speed up the time to arrive" at the publication of the report on the Vatican's internal investigation into the disgraced former cardinal.
Parolin did confirm that he expects the document to be released "in the near future."
