Editorial: The Catholic church is in crisis, and its leaders are making it worse

If any truth emerged from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops meeting this week in Baltimore, it was surely Archbishop William E. Lori's observation that the priest sex abuse scandal " is going to be with us for a long, long time." The church covered up the widespread abuse of children and adults by priests for a long, long time. It denied and deflected public outrage for a long, long time. And now, when a Pennsylvania grand jury report revealed the breadth of the abuse, and the fall of former Washington Archbishop Theodore McCarrick demonstrated that it extended to the top rungs of the Catholic hierarchy, the church is waiting longer to take even the most obvious of steps to restore its parishioners' faith.

Commentary: Archbishop outlines path toward reform and renewal in the Catholic Church

As is customary this time of year, Baltimore is again hosting the nation's Catholic bishops, who are convening here in America's first Roman Catholic diocese for extensive discussions about the relevance and impact of Catholic faith in American society. This year in particular, because of the severe crisis confronting the church, the agenda, deliberations and outcomes of our meeting are rightly under intense scrutiny.
