This only makes sense. With the New Evangelization taking off in only a few areas of Catholic life, e.g., the Traditional Latin Rite of liturgy and sacraments, and the major liberal dioceses losing membership at breakneck speed, the financial support for victims of clerical abuse is draining all aspects of diocesan operations. Funding that used to be directed to charitable, catechetical, infrastructure maintenance, and other important needs must of necessity be redirected to reparations for sin.
