U.S. bishops big man promises

Making the grand statement last summer about “failure of leadership” by bishops in the matter of sexual abuse:

“We firmly resolve,” Cardinal DiNardo wrote, “with the help of God’s grace, never to repeat it.”

Why always the grand statement? Gets you in trouble every time, sacrificing honesty for the sake of consoling people or calming them down.

Another made that mistake in 2002, telling the faithful that “we all look to end this, for the sake of the victims, for the sake of the church, the sake of our people.”

Who said that? Cardinal McCarrick.
