Whether or not the conviction stands up, Monsignor William J. Lynn’s trial remains a warning to church officials everywhere, said the Rev. Thomas J. Reese, a senior analyst for the National Catholic Reporter and expert on church leadership. New accusations are less frequent, Father Reese noted, “but in general when a case comes up, everyone is picking up the phone and dialing 911.”
