Chicago Tribune Explores the Archdiocese of Chicago

In the wake of the Pope’s resignation, the Chicago Tribune has written a long piece on the Archdiocese of Chicago, including its efforts to handle decades of child abuse by its priests.

It remains unclear why the Pope actually resigned, but we hope articles like this reflect the Archdiocese and other Church leaders realizing that the best way to put the abuse scandal behind them is to be transparent with abuse survivors and offer them meaningful closure.
