CWN Editor's Note: At an event in Rome, anticipated as a launch for his new book The Day is Now Far Spent, Cardinal Robert Sarah instead spoke at length about the letter of Pope-emeritus Benedict on the sex-abuse crisis, saying that the letter “demonstrated brilliantly” his argument about the crisis of the Catholic faith. Cardinal Sarah regretted that the former Pope’s letter “has prompted reactions that at times have bordered on intellectual hysteria.”
