Leading British prelate says Pope has been tough on abuse

Catholic World News - March 26, 2010

Writing in the London Times, Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster argued that Pope Benedict XVI has been firm and decisive in his handling of sex-abuse cases-- both as Pontiff and previously as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the dicastery that handles such cases. The archbishop emphasized that individual bishops are responsible for the oversight of priests within their own dioceses-- an observation that would clearly apply to the case of a Milwaukee priest cited this week in a New York Times story.
