Regarding stories on abuse and its victims, Sept. 1, pages 1, 4, 5:

We are especially indebted to the Catholic Sentinel for articles written by managing editor Ed Langlois and reporter Katie Scott who, relating with receptive hearts, understanding minds and responsive will, covered the curse of sexual child abuse by erring clergy who brought shame and ruin to the church, especially the faithful clergy who, ever after, suffered from their brothers’ sins.

Alleluia to the ongoing courage and vision, first to our Archbishop Alexander Sample, the Catholic Sentinel, and all of the employees who support it.

As Sir John Wotton expressed it: “How happy he is born and taught/ That serveth not another’s will;/ Whose armor is his honest/ Thought and simple truth his Utmost skill.”
