The Roman Catholic church needs to pick up the pieces, Cardinal Edward M. Egan told parishioners Sunday, as bishops returned to their pulpits after passing a new mandate on dealing with pedophile priests. Egan and other church leaders apologized to worshippers for the clergy's handling of one the worst scandals in U.S. church history. "This is a harsh day. These are terrible times. And we are all outraged, scandalized," Egan told parishioners at St. Charles Parish on Staten Island.

Roman Catholic Cardinal Edward M. Egan wrote in a letter to parishioners Saturday that he apologizes "if, in hindsight," he made any mistakes in handling sex abuse allegations against priests. Egan, who has been criticized for his handling of sexual abuse allegations against priests when he was bishop of Bridgeport, Conn., stopped short of saying directly that he had made mistakes. "It is clear that today we have a much better understanding of this problem.

As many Roman Catholic Church officials across the nation rush to cooperate with law enforcement officials in the burgeoning sex abuse scandal, the New York archdiocese has been a notable exception. Cardinal Edward M. Egan, who has called pedophilia "an abomination," says the nation's third-largest archdiocese will refer cases of alleged abuse to authorities--but only when the church determines there is reasonable cause to do so, and only if victims' families do not object.

A Roman Catholic monsignor named in court papers as "the other man" in a divorce case resigned as rector of St. Patrick's Cathedral, the New York archdiocese said. Cardinal Edward M. Egan accepted Msgr. Eugene Clark's resignation from the key church position despite the 79-year-old Clark's denials that he has been carrying on an affair with his 46-year-old private secretary, the church said. "He offered his resignation for the good of St. Patrick's and the archdiocese," the statement said.

Re "Cardinal Law Is Snubbed," April 12: Regardless of celebrant, the Mass is about the body and blood of Christ. That he officiated is a sign that Boston's former archbishop, Cardinal Bernard Law, has confessed and been absolved of his sins. That they apparently snubbed Law's Mass for political reasons is a sign that, on probably the most important mission of their priesthoods, the three cardinals -- Edward M. Egan of New York, Francis George of Chicago and Roger M. Mahony of L.A. -- have gotten a little rusty on the Christian virtues of humility and forgiveness.

The obliteration of the truth of the Orange County bankruptcy goes on. I read the disgusting July 26 article painting Merrill Lynch as the only bad guy, manipulator of poor little ol' weak-brained former County Treasurer Robert Citron, formerly widely acclaimed as the savviest county treasurer in the United States and former president of the statewide treasurers' association, an honor not given to nitwits. He presided over years of brinkmanship investing of the people's money almost purely for ego, based on tenuous but impressive results.

He said he will send a letter to members of the diocese explaining how it responds to such accusations. Cardinal Edward M. Egan also said he is confident the Bridgeport, Conn., diocese that he once headed acted appropriately in addressing a series of sexual abuse cases in the 1990s.
