CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Michael Byrnes of Agana, Guam, has announced that the Church will file for bankruptcy protection, in the face of dozens of sex-abuse lawsuits. “This path will bring the greatest measure of justice to the greatest number of victims,” the archbishop said. The previous head of the Agana archdiocese, Archbishop Anthony Apuron, was removed from office after a series of abuse charges.
