Lee Penn answers the latest Vatican publicity move regarding priests’ underage gay sex scandal
Lee writes:

1. I agree that penance is necessary — but it should start with action by the church leadership. Without deeds by the responsible parties, the suggested words of contrition are empty.
2. Cantalamessa says that we are now ‘after the emergency’ occasioned by the priestly predators. I strongly disagree, and explain why.
3. I propose 13 things that the Vatican and local bishops could do to resolve the scandal and provide justice to the victims and to the scandalized faithful.
4. At the end, I propose four things that the faithful should do ... whatever the Hierarchs do (or fail to do).

Justice is the foundation for peace ... at Christmas time and at all times.
