A New Level of Caring

Bishop Imesch is "baffled" and "deeply hurt" that he is being accused of not caring about victims of sexual abuse. He is accused of:
1. being slow to act
2. being cold hearted
3. transferring priests who are abusers

This is surprising and somewhat puzzling. According to Sr. Mary Frances Seely who works for the diocese (i.e. on the payroll) :

"They have done everything possible that I know of," said Sister Mary Frances Seeley, a Franciscan who serves as the diocese's victim assistance minister. "I know (Imesch) has interrupted meetings to talk to victims."

Interrupting meetings to talk to victims. Truly this is a new level of caring.
