Those of you who have been following the German sex abuse story in these and other pages have read that German Catholics feel anger and shame as these stories continue to appear almost daily in the German press.
These are fair characterizations of German reactions, as best I can determine by being in Munich this past week.
This story, first reported in the German press, has now appeared on the BBC web site. You might find it worth reading to get a sense of what is so upsetting to German Catholics. For those who have followed this tragedy over the years, the case sadly has a familiar ring.
