Cardinal Bernard Law, symbol of Church's sexual abuse crisis, dies

Cardinal Bernard Law

Cardinal Bernard Law, the former archbishop of Boston who became a symbol of the Roman Catholic Church's world-wide sexual abuse scandals, died at age 86 on Wednesday, the Vatican said.

Law, whose resignation from his Boston post in 2002 shocked the Church and brought abuse into the open, had been living in Rome and was in declining health in recent years.
