CWN Editor's Note: “A dominant theme at the [recent Vatican summit on protecting minors in the Church] was the need for an effective reporting mechanism when a bishop or cardinal has failed in his duty to protect children or has himself abused children or vulnerable adults,” said the Boston cardinal, who also serves as head of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. “Although I believe an effective set of procedures will be developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, I nonetheless wish to address this need immediately for the Archdiocese of Boston.”
