A very disturbing piece by Rod Dreher today on the human cost of our shepherd’s transgressions. What is the Church for? To bring souls to Christ, the only source of salvation. Look at the cost of this scandal in terms of the human cost and money doesn’t much matter. We need openess and accountability from our bishops and cardinals. We need to help the victims of this abuse heal fully. We need action on their part to eliminate this abuse in the future. We need to pray.
