There is new information from the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago. A court ordered mediation has been underway between the Church and victims of sexual abuse at the hands of priests. The mediation has been going on for almost a decade. Church documents have just been released supporting the victims allegations. This is just one sordid chapter in what is now apparent - until the churches' victims of the last quarter have come forward sexual abuse was condoned and managed by church leadership rather than condemned. As I read today's news the scene from a movie played in my memory. It illustrates the ravages of a dishonest life. Watch it yourself.
