Thanks to "The Depauw" for publishing my letter to the editor on priestly sex abuse

BACKGROUND:  "The DePauw", the student newspaper of DePauw University (where I am the Catholic chaplain) published an editorial in the days following the Holy Father's visit, stating that the Pope should do more to prevent priestly child abuse than simply offer "papal platitudes".


I frankly found their article offensive.  It was the only article they published on the entire week-long papal visit...as if that was the major takeaway.


Anyway,  I wrote a letter to the editor, and I thank them for publishing it.
