At the risk of beating the Boston Cardinal Law story into the ground, I can’t ignore the latest bizzare statement he made regarding his hand picked Finance Council’s rejection last Friday of the multi-million dollar settlement with 86 victims of defrocked priest John Geoghan to which he had agreed last month. Yesterday Cardinal Law said he didn’t know, until last Friday, that the Finance Council’s approval was necessary before he could go forward with the settlements because canon law requires such an OK. If he didn’t know, the next obvious question is: Why did he call the meeting? He previously had set the meeting for last Wednesday, cancelled it late Tuesday and then on Thursday notified the 15 members of the Council the meeting was on again for the next day! And his alleged lack of knowledge on a matter of such import to the archdiocese he claims to be the best person to run is another reason why he should step down.
