Shame on Cardinal Brady. Catholic bishops are monarchs with tremendous power. But when child sex abuse and cover up cases come to light, they pretend to be powerless.
It's disingenuous for Brady to claim that because he wrote one memo, he did all he could do to protect kids from Fr. Brendan Smyth. He could and should have done more and he knows it. It's tragic that he refuses to publicly admit that, because he did the absolute bare minimum in this case, other unsuspecting parents welcomed Fr. Smyth into their homes and other innocent kids were severely hurt by him.
We join those who are calling on Brady to resign.
