A rare agreement
It isn't very often that I find myself in substantial agreement with an editorial in the National Catholic Reporter. But their latest, calling for the resignation of the auxiliary bishops who served in Boston under Cardinal Law, is on the money.
A small sampling:
To regain credibility, leaders of the church must accept responsibility for their actions....
In the spirit of fraternal correction, their brother bishops should call upon McCormack, Daily, Banks, Murphy and Hughes to retire....
Only by taking personal accountability for their egregious failures will the bishops, individually and collectively, begin to restore their lost credibility and become worthy pastoral leaders.
