Looks like Pope Francis’ Mr. Fix-it is going to be Chi-Town’s next hero… Do you believe it? From Patch.com

CHICAGO, IL — The Catholic archbishop of Chicago, who was hand-picked by the pope to help organize an upcoming Vatican summit on clergy sex abuse, will have a leading role in the church's effort to seek reforms, including the response to new allegations from the Illinois attorney general.

Cardinal Blase Cupich expressed regret for "our failures to address the scourge of clerical sexual abuse" in a statement responding to the attorney general's report, which said the church failed to disclose the names of at least 500 clergy accused of sexually abusing children.

REMNANT COMMENT: So, I wonder what Cardinal Cupich is going to do to the bad guys this time. Hand out more awards?
