Cardinal Bernard Law, who was forced to resign as the head of the Roman
Catholic Church in Boston after the priest sexual abuse scandal at the
end of 2002, has been appointed by Pope John Paul II to head a basilica
in Rome. He will become the archpriest of St. Mary Major Basilica, a
church in a downtown neighborhood of Rome that is under direct Vatican
jurisdiction.

Law, 72, will succeed 82 year old Italian Cardinal Carlo Furno. A
Vatican official said Law ill be "in charge of the administration of the
priests and anything related to" the church, considered one of the 4
most important Catholic churches in Rome. In the interim, Cardinal Law
has been serving as chaplain at the Sisters of Mercy of Alma convent in
Clinton, MD.

Vatican observers say that Law, who will receive approximately $12,000 a
month in the new post and live in a palatial apartment adjacent to the
church, will have virtual autonomy in his position and will remain among
the powerful in the Vatican beaurocracy.
