|Darn! I should have brought a handkerchief|
with some onions so I could produce some tears!
Circling the wagons and waiting out the crisis has worked in the past. Can it work again?
So the new strategy is crocodile tears, promises of change, and painting the angry reactions to sex abuse and the cover ups as a plot to get the pope!
Cardinal Wuerl sent out a letter to his priests yesterday which seems to me to be implementing the new strategy. He wants, he says to "be close" to his priests, an expression that made me snort in view of what the crisis is all about. It immediately brought to mind McCarrick asking seminarians to share his bed. Now that's getting "close!"
