The scandal swirling around Cardinal Roger Mahoney is growing even more complicated. First, many urged Mahoney not to participate in the selection of the new pope. Now Cardinal Levada says Mahoney should participate. Oh boy...
A top U.S. cardinal came to the defense of Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony, saying some priest abuse victims groups who have criticized Mahony may never be satisfied with the church's response to the crisis.
Cardinal William Levada on Monday said Mahony should help select a new pope.
"There are some victims groups for whom enough is never enough, so we have to do our jobs as best we see it," said Levada, 76, according to Associated Press. "He has apologized for errors in judgment that were made. I believe he should be at the conclave."
