Chicago Archdiocese Releasing Sex Abuse Files On 36 Priests

Fulfilling Cardinal Francis George's vow to release all sex abuse files the Archdiocese of Chicago has in its possession before he retires, 15,000 pages of documents are being released on 36 priests against whom allegations of sexual abuse of children were substantiated over the past six decades. The files of these 36 priests are in addition to the files made public on 30 priests in January. How does the church survive these never-ending disclosures? NBC Chicago says the files concern the following priests, a number of whom are now deceased:
