The bishop is a caricature; he is pure evil and never gives a hint of any qualities that might have made his situation tragic or earned a tiny bit of empathy, What group in the curia would appoint this man a bishop of the church? On what merits? There's not a bit of humanity there that would have made him real or given us an insight into a troubled priest with major weaknesses who might indeed still love his church or his vocation or his diocese, despite his sins and weaknesses. Likewise, his fellow abuser priests who are murdered in fairly silly scenarios by a rather unbelievable murderess. Too much pure evil masquerading behind Roman collars and vestments!! Was there anything redeemable in these guys?
And who can feel for a priest like Tim, who uses his privileged background, worldly experience, and naive and controlling nana to parade his new female lover around the city in limos to operas, making out in public, etc. Are we to believe it's okay for Fr Cavanaugh to get away with this flagrant violation of celibacy just because he is sympathetic to clergy abuse victims and focuses his own sexual energy on a woman instead of a child or teenaged boy?
There is a lot of room for a great story involving the scandals of abusive clergy and powerful bishops in the Church. This book skims the surface poorly. And really, Father Mast, "Getting to Know You" is not from THE SOUND OF MUSIC; it's from THE KING AND I! The whole book, right back to the author's comments, is badly in need of a good editor!
