CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Angelo Comastri, who stepped down this week from his post at archpriest of St. Peter’s basilica, has been charged with ignoring sexual abuse at the Vatican’s own seminary. The charge of negligence against him could be pursued both as a canonical offense and as a crime under the Vatican’s civil code.
