"A recurrence of hepatitis was to be feigned should anyone ask." Memo of Msgr. William A. Genuario, Vice-Chancellor, concerning the assignment of Laurence Brett to a retreat house. Dec. 2, 1964.

"Most Catholics think, in a vague way, that the Bishop is accountable for the transgressions of his priests and that he should protect the faithful. . . .

Archbishop Egidio Vagnozzi, Apostolic Delegate, to Bishop Curtis, Dec. 21, 1965.
