Over the past 25 years, I have come to understand that the more monstrous and blatant the lie, the harder it can be to perceive, most especially if the deceiver is a revered individual or institution.

I can find no other explanation for how the Vatican and successive Popes have been able to peddle mistruths about their deliberate global cover-up of the rape and abuse of children and vulnerable adults right across the Catholic world.
