CWN Editor's Note: Stung by public criticism after a television interview in which he said that Pope Francis should not be distracted from “a bigger agenda” by sex-abuse complaints, Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago ordered all priests in his archdiocese to read a statement at Sunday Masses, criticizing the television station that aired the interview. While the cardinal said that the interview had been unfairly edited, station officials replied that their broadcast was accurate.
