Yesterday, Cardinal Law apologized for re-assigning priests guilty of sexual abuse.

Here's the Boston Herald describing the liturgy and homily.

I still am missing something, though. What I don't hear - either because it's not being said or not reported or I'm dense - is the answer to the question "why?" The pieces of this puzzle still aren't publicly connected. You knew what sexual abuse was, yet you reassigned priests guilty of it, and you and your subordinate bishops treated claims of abuse with either hostility or silence, for the most part. Why?
