"We'll be reviewing it," SF Archdiocesan spokesman Maurice Healy says of Levada's directive, according to the Globe. He did not say, "We'll be obeying it."
The Globe says Levada announced in his order that Brian Cahill, head of Catholic Charities of San Francisco (CCSF), has told him that while he was Archbishop of San Francisco, CCSF turned three children over to homosexual pairs.
Cahill told the Globe that his figures now show that in the past five years his agency handled the adoptions of 136 children and handed over five of them to homosexual pairs. Cahill told the Globe he thinks those handovers appropriate.
No word yet from new San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer, a friend of Levada and of Cardinal Mahony, on what he plans to do about these developments.
We all should pray for those adopted children, of course.
