CWN Editor's Note: “This is the first time I have ever heard of a federal investigation into child sexual abuse in a Catholic diocese or church,” said a prominent victims’ attorney. The federal investigation “is no surprise considering the horrific misconduct detailed in the statewide grand jury report,” the Diocese of Greensburg said in a statement.

This is a terrible thing to happen. God help us. Much of this was seen and written about in 1969 by a then Fr Joseph Ratzinger. A prophet in our time.
