Great News for San Juan

Vatican Insider has the story -- alas, not in English -- about the complete exoneration of Archbishop Roberto Gonzalez Nieves of San Juan, Puerto Rico. This is very good news for the people of San Juan and for those of us lucky enough to consider Gonzalez a friend. Because of that friendship, I have not written about this issue previously, nor will I do so now, except to express relief that the Holy See finally figured out what was going on and reached the correct conclusions.
