I feel sad and annoyed when I read people slamming Roman Catholic priests, nuns, brothers and so on. There is certainly much wrong with the Roman Catholic Church and its conduct (things that also repeat themselves with equal veracity in the non Roman Catholic Churches).
However…many people have forgotten the H-U-G-E debt that is owed by Western Civilization for the preservation of learning and the Christian faith that took place through the Holy Spirit empowering monks to preserve our Bible and so on. Also, here is the US and in Canada **MANY ** communities would have had NO hospitals had it not been for Roman Catholic nuns. The Priests endured great hardship to bring the Christian faith to very rural parts of the United states, brought schools and so on. No financial rewards, only the knowledge that they were doing the work of Jesus Christ.
Catholic hospitals charitably treated all…not just insured…not just Roman Catholics. So before we spend too much time villainizing these folks we first ought to say a prayer of thanks to God for sending them our way and our grandparents way, etc.
