Letter to the editor

 |  NCR Today

Dear Editor:

As a Catholic priest for 38 years, I am both sad and angry because the sexual abuse scandal in my church continues to claim more victims, now in Germany.

My instincts tell me that this cover-up, silence and indifference toward the victims a=would not have happened if the Catholic church had women priests and women bishops.
