(CBS) CHICAGO There are new charges against a Roman Catholic priest already charged with sexually abusing three boys.

Father Daniel McCormack is now accused of abusing two more young boys.

CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports the cardinal says the new charges are upsetting.

“Every time one hears of this, you're devastated again,” Francis Cardinal George said.

Cardinal George reacted Monday to the latest charges against Father Daniel McCormack, who charged last weekend with molesting two more West Side boys.

“This is a cancer that eats away at all of us because in the church we're connected and in the society we're connected,” George said.
