Many of us find it hard to reconcile the facts of the Philadelphia Archdiocese priest pedophile scandal with our own positive experiences in Catholic school and parishes. Although the unthinkable has happened, it’s not the only truth. Because of their peers and the Church cover up, innocent priests are now scrutinized and suspected.
It’s important to remember the sacrifice and intention of these men, who far outnumber the guilty. In an effort to maintain perspective, I ask readers to please share an instance where a member of the clergy improved their life.
We must change our Church for everyone – including the clergy.
Let’s shine a light in the darkness.
