Summary "Vows of Silence is an anatomy of the Vatican justice system, following the haunting saga of Father Marcial Maciel, who won the favor of Pope John Paul II despite years of pedophilia accusations. The greatest fundraiser of the modern church, Maciel founded the Legionaires of Christ, a religious order with a $650 million budget and history of controversial tactics. The film tracks a 1998 abuse charge against Maciel filed with Cardinal Ratzinger. The Secretary of State, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, tried to abort the case. In 2004, with Pope John Paul dying, Ratzinger took action"--Container.
