The mood was ugly. So, too, now, the accusations have emerged from a backdrop of anxiety and anger verging at times on hysteria. The man making the accusations was a senior Vatican official prior to his diplomatic appointment to Washington DC between and The anger of Catholics in the United States and elsewhere is the result of revelations that in the ss McCarrick seamlessly ascended the ecclesiastical career ladder while regularly suborning seminarians for sex.
Although not criminal acts — these were adults — they were not just violations of celibacy but clearly abusive, given the asymmetry of power. Then came two more shocking revelations. The first — something no one knew until very recently — was that McCarrick had also abused a minor. The second was the Pennsylvania grand jury report on the mishandling over many decades of clerical sex abuse.
Although it showed again that abuse was rife in the ss but drastically fell in the s as a result of actions and sanctions, the heart-shattering details of depraved, often clearly demonic exploitation by priests of innocent young people, and the apparent indifference of bishops, have triggered widespread indignation and shame. The result has been mounting frustration in America at what is widely perceived to be a global failure of church leadership, and a growing demand for bishops and the Vatican to be held to account.
This is a very different kind of silence from, say, the silence of complicity or the silence of inaction faced with evidence of evil, as we have seen too often in the case of sexual abuse of minors. This kind of silence involves a deliberate choice not to respond with an intellectual or reasoned self-defence, which in a context of confusion, of claims and counter-claims and half-truths, simply fuels the cycle of hysterical accusation and counter-accusation.
It is a spiritual strategy to force the spirits behind the attack to reveal themselves. Gradually, the rage will begin to focus on a single person. As Jesus is steadily weakened — the disciples flee, Peter denies him, and he is left alone on the Cross — the devil reveals himself, believing that he has won. Bergoglio writes:.

He drank from a different fountain
In A Time to Keep Silence, Leigh Fermor writes about a more inward journey, describing his several sojourns in some of Europe's oldest and most venerable monasteries. He stays at the Abbey of St. Wandrille, a great repository of art and learning; at Solesmes, famous for its revival of Gregorian chant; and at the deeply ascetic Trappist monastery of La Grande Trappe, where monks take a vow of silence. Finally, he visits the rock monasteries of Cappadocia, hewn from the stony spires of a moonlike landscape, where he seeks some trace of the life of the earliest Christian anchorites.
More than a history or travel journal, however, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life.
Leigh Fermor writes, "In the seclusion of a cell-an existence whose quietness is only varied by the silent meals, the solemnity of ritual, and long solitary walks in the woods-the troubled waters of the mind grow still and clear, and much that is hidden away and all that clouds it floats to the surface and can be skimmed away; and after a time one reaches a state of peace that is unthought of in the ordinary world.

Association copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, "For Darling Debo written in great haste! Leigh Fermor first met Deborah when she was still a young debutante and eventually formed a deep friendship, as well as a correspondence that would last for more than half a century. Their letters were published in book form in with the title In Tearing Haste. When something caught their interest and they knew the other would be amused, they sent off a letter-there are glimpses of President Kennedy's inauguration, weekends at Sandringham, filming with Errol Flynn, the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, and, above all, life at Chatsworth, the great house that Debo spent much of her life restoring, and of Paddy in the house that he and his wife designed and built on the Mani in Greece.
There rarely have been such contrasting styles: Debo-smart, idiosyncratic, and funny-darts from subject to subject, dashing off letters in her breezy, spontaneous style. Paddy, the polygot and widely read virtuoso, replies in the fluent polished manner that has earned him recognition as one of the finest writers in the English language.
