SF Archdiocese Calls SF Weekly Mother Teresa Story a 'Dark Day for Journalism'

We've been getting quite a range of reaction to yesterday's cover story on Mother Teresa's links to convicted pedophile priest Donald McGuire. Documents obtained by SF Weekly indicate that the “Saint of Calcutta” might have urged Jesuit officials to overlook a sex-abuse allegation against McGuire by a Walnut Creek boy in 1993.

We asked multiple church officials for comment prior to publication. The Missionaries of Charity (MT's order of nuns), the Jesuits, the Vatican-deputized investigator of MT's sainthood case, and the Archdiocese of San Francisco all declined to talk or did not respond to our calls and e-mails. But now the San Francisco Archdiocese has commented on the story for Univision Channel 14, which ran a story based on our reporting.
