Robert Sungenis of Catholic Apologetics International posts a comprehensive article on the scandal and why we should not fear for the future of the Church. I previously slammed him pretty hard over his ideas about orbital mechanics, but I will say again, his books are wonderful and he is one of the most knowledgable apologists we have.

I’ll say it again – we must pray for our leaders in the faith, for the victims, for the direct and indirect perpetrators of this evil, and for our Church. Trust in God’s unfathomable mercy, His love and His promises of salvation and the resilence of the Church in this age. We must also work to be His vehicles of mercy and love – Jesus has no hands but ours with which to heal those who are suffering. He is all-seeing and listens with His whole heart to our prayers. He is be present in the Blessed Sacrament, but it is each of us that He sends forth to be ministers of His love and peace to each other and the world.
