A shocker

I just found out that a fellow I knew in college was arrested for having sexual contact with a student at the Catholic school where he taught. She was of the age of consent, but state law forbids relations between teachers and students regardless of age.

I haven’t seen or spoken with him in probably over 10 years, and we were never close friends (in fact, he probably doesn’t remember me), but I’m sure he needs prayers. Please pray for him and the girl involved.

Also, I have a question: since this is reported in the news and online, would it be wrong to inform other people who knew him?

Peace,

Praying.Hope it turns out reasonably well.

Prayers.

my Jesus mercy!

Saying prayers for all involved:

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Praying for all involved in this situation.

I don’t think it would be a good idea. After all people are innocent until proven guilty.I think we must be careful in this sort of situation. Let us avoid being the ones to spread gossip:) The Press and T.V are already excellent in that domain!!! They will shatter his reputation and his career. And if after all it isn’t true? And what if the girl has her part to play for the blame?I think it would be preferable to remain silent, but by all means pray for them both.:slight_smile:

Amen!!

Advice from a sinner: don’t talk about him unneccesarily.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God. Pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death Amen.
