Vatican says no investigation of Legionaries founder

CNS STORY: Vatican says no church action planned against Legionaries' founder

The Vatican is no longer investigating the founder of the Legionaires of Christ for possible sexual abuse. While it is important to maintain the principle of innocent until proven guilty, there remains an air of suspicion that the allegations were not fully investigated. Given the current atmosphere of suspicion and earlier reports that the witnesses had been viewed as being credible I don't think that this will bode well for the Church as it tries to demonstrate that it is taking the tragedy of sexual abuse more seriously.
