Mere hours until the verdict in Lyon on
Barbarin and about five others.

I don't expect ollaimh to actually read any of those articles I linked to, but he might be able to speak from a position of knowledge if he did. Here's an excerpt from one of those articles - from a Catholic newspaper:
    The truth is there are some very sick men in the priesthood that need very serious help and there are some men in the priesthood who are so psychosexually immature or damaged that they have no place in ministry. And the closed, secretive, all-male power structure of the church protected these men and gravely exacerbated the situation.

    Satan did not swoop in and use these men as his tools to destroy the church. These men destroyed it all by themselves by enforcing a warped view of sexuality, making the preservation of their patriarchal rule their first priority and trading in cover-ups, lies and institutional blackmail.

    But while Francis set out to boldly slay metaphysical dragons, his army of prelates slouched through a four-day slog.

    The cardinals, archbishops and other high-ranking clergymen who appeared at the summit's daily press briefings looked at turns exhausted by the weight and bleakness of the situation, embarrassed by their obvious incompetence, confounded by some of their peers' refusal to see why sex abuse is a problem, and generally adrift in the cesspool they have created. It was so dismal that Satan didn't need to creep into the picture.

    Survivors and their advocates were right to be disappointed that their basic demands were not met, but anyone listening to these press briefings would not have been surprised. Since all question-and-answer dialogues and working group sessions were off-limits to the press, our only insights into the inner workings of the meeting came from off-the-cuff remarks at these press conferences.

    And these comments gave the distinct impression that the bishops who traveled to Rome were nowhere near ready to take action.

How good is your French? If it's good enough,
you can read the link to "Le Progrès,"
which offers some direct courts from
a French-language transcript of the Lyon trial,
in particular the judge's decision of

a guilty verdict for Cardinal Barbarin.

Barbarin announced that he will resign as archbishop of Lyon.
