Cardinal: I should've done more

Chicago Sun-Times

Two damning reports released by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago Monday show how missteps by Cardinal Francis George and a host of other church officials allowed an accused pedophile priest to remain in ministry for years with unfettered access to scores of children.

The reports were commissioned by the archdiocese after the Rev. Daniel McCormack was charged with molesting three boys at Chicago's St. Agatha parish between September 2001 and December 2005.

As Jimmy Lago, the archdiocesan chancellor, read an overview of the findings, George sat in a chair off to the side, head bowed, arms folded tightly.
