With the curtain up on part 3 of the Carlos Urrutigoity soap opera at dotCommonweal, retired EWTN celebrity and supporting player Benedict Groeschel is put under an uncomfortable spotlight, post and commentariat both.
What constitutes piling on an elderly man, likely impaired by a serious injury, and now in retirement? How much do his errors need to be spotlighted to help us avoid future blunders on the part of bishops, watchers, and the rest of the Church?
The truth is the truth. Fr Groeschel has a certain rep more on the right in the Church. He was a go-to guy for bishops, and he came up empty in the smear Father U left across eastern Pennsylvania.
