” A leading Roman Catholic bishop warns that an unprecedented study the church commissioned on 50 years of clergy sex abuse cases will “add to our own sorrow” about predatory priests. The study will count the number of abuse claims nationwide since the 1950s and tally the costs for legal settlements with victims, attorneys’ fees and therapy for victims and offenders. The report is to be released Feb. 27, during Lent. Bishop Wilton Gregory, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said hearing the results will be unpleasant and painful.”
