Will our soon-to-be-named new Bishop fulfill the recommendations set forth by the Grand Jury? The likelihood varies with the candidates who have been rumored as replacements for Cardinal Rigali. I was hoping the assignment would be announced to Philadelphia’s faithful during Sunday Masses. But it looks like this will be a media announcement. Spiritual healing hasn’t topped the Church leadership’s to do list.
One of the Grand Jury recommendations was to support legislation that would remove the PA statute of limitations for child sexual abuse. Catholics4Change has joined forces with other child advocates to form Justice4PAKids. The site is still under construction, but we hope you’ll visit, subscribe and support the effort. The individuals and groups involved are taking this initiative to protect ALL Pennsylvania children and we are proud to participate.
