I would ask for prayer for Bishop Finn at this time

As everyone knows - it has made the news worldwide - Bishop Finn of the diocese of Kansas City - St Joseph and the diocese have been indicted on charges of failing to report child abuse. You can read about it here, for instance.

As Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said:
“This has nothing — nothing — to do with the Catholic faith. This is about the facts"
It is a matter of law, not the Catholic faith, and it appears to me that Bishop Finn is anxious to do all he can to co-operate with law enforcement authorities.

The diocese's statement is here.
