I am in full agreement with RNS's Mark Silk that Cardinal Sean O'Malley's press conference on Saturday was stunning and, hopefully, a sign that the entire Church is finally going to climb out of denial about the crime of sexually abusing minors. Silk, like NCR, has been tough as tough can be on this subject, so when he is hopeful, at least guardedly hopeful, we can all hope we are on the right track.
