The Sins of Celibacy | by Alexander Stille | The New York Review of Books

As a result of Viganò’s latest accusations and the release eleven days earlier of a Pennsylvania grand jury report that outlines in excruciating detail decades of sexual abuse of children by priests, as well as further revelations of sexual misconduct by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, D.C., Francis’s papacy is now in a deep, possibly fatal crisis. After two weeks of silence, Francis announced in mid-September that he would convene a large-scale gathering of the church’s bishops in February to discuss the protection of minors against sexual abuse by priests.

"Viganò’s partial account of the way ...": why on earth would one write such an ambiguous accusation? Ignorance of English? The author did graduate from The Yale; perhaps that's an excuse.
