Well if that is so, and I believe it is so, then why have the big summit about children with Americans in attendance, who were not allowed in November to work out their own solution to the main current problem, abuse by bishops et al. of non-children?

Or have the Americans hold a seminar for the rest of the world.

In any case, why is Cupich bragging on this dramatic drop when he’s one of two American bishops on the Vatican cabinet post who arranged the last-minute kibosh, blindsiding, of the November meeting?

Intriguing, this Vatican intrigue, especially with a one-time Peronista in charge.
