. . .Msgr. Edgar Peña Parra, who has been tapped to take on the #2 role at the Vatican Secretariat of State, has become the subject of a dossier compiled by the laity in his home diocese which makes mention of possible homosexual behavior.  Luis Cardinal  Ferrer, Prefect of the Congregation for the CDF, has also failed to respond to a court summons in France as a co-defendant in the trial of Cardinal Barbarin, for “failing to denounce a sexually abusive priest”. . .
