Last week, several Roman Catholic bishops, including Paprocki, urged colleagues at their national meeting [in November] to take some sort of action on the clergy sex abuse crisis despite a Vatican order to delay voting on key proposals.
Paprocki suggested a nonbinding vote to convey a sense of the bishops’ aspirations regarding anti-abuse efforts.
“We are not branch managers of the Vatican,” he said. “Our people are crying out for some action.”
Smart guy, good guy.
