Thank You, Archbishop Gomez, for Removing Cardinal Mahony from Public Duty

Many thanks to Archbishop Gomez.


Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez announced Thursday that Cardinal Roger Mahony would have a reduced role in the church and that Santa Barbara Bishop Thomas J. Curry has stepped down from that job amid recent revelations over their handling of the priest abuse scandal in the 1980s.

Read the whole thing, including his letter.

Deacon’s Bench:

I can’t recall a time a sitting archbishop has taken steps like this to effectively and officially remove from public life his predecessor—especially one as prominent as Mahony.

Yes, it’s a big deal.
