Cardinal errors

• I left Ireland 20 years ago and I now live near San Francisco in the East Bay. Isn't Cardinal Sean Brady the brave boy now to stand up for himself, showing defiance and fighting his corner. What a shame this bravery never manifested itself to help others in need.

I think priests, like doctors, should take something like a Hippocratic oath. They have so much power to do evil or good in the course of their ministries.
