I think perhaps reading this at this late date dilluted the immediacy of this shameful topic -- the abuse, but also the heinous cover-up. The author did a fine job of reporting, but I was amazed to read that after unearthing such a thing he retained his Catholicity. Mine departed in 1980 and all I can say is after reading this I'm glad it did.
