Courage and responsibility; bishops and Pontius Pilate
The two stories for the past week, for American Catholic readers, were the opening of The Passion and the sex-abuse report by the National Review Board.
In a brilliant National Review article, John O'Sullivan manages to put those stories together. He sees, in the behavior of Pontius Pilate (as depicted by Gibson, closely following the Gospel account), an important lesson for US bishops.
