VICTIMS’ SUMMIT BUST
Last April, the National Catholic Reporter ran a story on the so-called “Victims’ Summit,” a gathering of alleged victims of priestly sexual abuse scheduled to take place in St. Peter’s Square on October 31. At that time, Bernie McDaid, one of the organizers, predicted they would amass 50,000 people in a massive show of anger against the Catholic Church.
Yesterday, the dissident Catholic newspaper reported that a grand total of 60 protesters showed up near St. Peter’s Square. Looks like this issue has run its course.
