Cardinal Bernard Law, who became an emblem of the Catholic clergy abuse scandal in Boston, died Wednesday morning at age 86. He was propelled to notoriety when it was revealed that he and other clergymen in the archdiocese of Boston covered up decades of accusations of child sexual abuse. In December 2002, Law resigned as the archbishop of Boston and, in 2004, moved to Rome where he was appointed the archpriest at Basilica of St. Mary Major by Pope John Paul II. He resigned from that position in 2011.
