"asked to comment on Law's future ..."

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Oct 13, 2005

Remember the bygone days of April, 2002, when the U.S. prelates were gasping and shaking their heads at the bad bad bishop of Boston?

The cardinal, who asked to remain anonymous, said Sunday that he had been "commissioned" by other senior prelates to take their case against [Boston's Cardinal Bernard] Law directly to Pope John Paul II's inner circle. He said that he, as well as others, would do so today during private meetings at the Vatican. Today's meetings come a day before two days of talks between America's cardinals and Vatican leaders on the abuse scandal. ...

Earlier this month, Los Angeles' Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, asked to comment on Law's future, said he would find it difficult to walk down an aisle in church if he had been guilty of gross negligence.

Tell you what. The Basilica of St. John Lateran needs a new arch-priest. Eleven paid holidays. Major medical. And no aisle strutting required.
