Cardinal O’Malley: Pope recognizes need to address Bishop Finn situation / National Catholic Reporter

Boston Cardinal Seán O’Malley, a key advisor to Pope Francis, has said the pontiff recognizes the need to address the situation in Kansas City, Mo., where Bishop Robert Finn was found guilty in 2012 of a criminal misdemeanor count of shielding a priest who was a threat to children.

“Speaking in a forthcoming interview with the U.S. television program 60 Minutes, O’Malley says the situation surrounding Finn is ‘a question that the Holy See needs to address urgently.’

“‘There’s a recognition of that — from Pope Francis,’ O’Malley continues during the interview, which is to air Sunday evening.

“CBS made a preview of the interview available online Friday (Nov. 14).”
