Of Kidnapping and Litigation
Mr. John L. Allen Jr.’s reports on the kidnapping of Jesuit Paolo Dall’Oglio, the apostle of “Muslim-Christian friendship” in Syria. In whose hands he is detained recently came to light.
A few lawsuits against priest-abusers have charged that each acted “as an ‘agent’ or an ‘employee’ of the Holy See while he served as a priest, and the Vatican is responsible for damages from his behavior.” Mr. Allen comments on both stories in his All Things Catholic.
