Cafardi and Silk on the Sex Abuse Crisis

Nick Cafardi, dean emeritus of the Duquesne Law School, is the person who knows more about the canonical context of the sex abuse crisis than any member of the Church Militant or Triumphant. He has written a smart essay at Commonweal that provides the kind of context missing from so much of the reportage in the mainstream secular press. It is a must-read. So, too, is Mark Silk’s analysis of Cafardi’s article.
