This isn’t good. The swirl of scandal has scooted past the pope’s brother to reach to Joseph Ratzinger’s administration as head of the München archdiocese. Is a bishop responsible? Can he so easily delegate responsibility as he can authority? For the sake of the Church, I hope we’re not lurching toward a “horrific scenario.” Or is delegation a convenience to ease a workload in one case, or on the other hand to make ecclesiastical or political point.
