Cardinal Mahony on Levada appointment
Cardinal Mahony on Levada's appointment as Prefect of the CDF:
"His personal understanding of the United States pastoral realities will also be most useful to the Holy Father in the coming years. For example, his personal experience with the clergy sexual abuse issues in our country will serve him well since his Congregation is the lead Vatican office dealing with these various matters. His commitment to help make the Church safe for all its members, especially children and youth, will support the Church's efforts across the country."
