Report: Pope Francis to send Cardinal Law to a monastery

Posted: Updated:

(MyFoxBoston.com) – There are conflicting reports about a possible confrontation between the new pope and a former archbishop of Boston.

The Vatican is now denying reports that Pope Francis ordered Bernard Cardinal Law to stay away from Saint Mary Major Basilica in Rome.
    
Law resigned as archbishop of Boston in 2002 during the height of the clergy sex abuse scandal. He was later named the archpriest of the Roman Basilica.
    
Saint Mary Major was one of the first churches visited by Pope Francis.

An earlier report on the website stpeterslist.com also said Pope Francis planned to send Cardinal Law to a monastery.
