Nicely done, Abp. Weakland

A beautifully contrite Abp. Weakland came clean at a Milwaukee service. May it be the beginning of his healing and the healing of the Church. Every corrupt bishop should take a cue and try his approach. Don’t call it a “mistake”. Call it what it is: sin. Also, nice job telling the full truth about your falsehood the other day. Dishonest is a habit that’s hard to break, so it took guts to make it clear that you did not, as you claimed the other day, earn enough to pay back the diocese for the hush money. I’m genuinely impressed by your courage, Abp. Weakland. If I’d been there, I would have applauded too. Well done.
