Our parish priest mentioned ways you can tell if clergy is truly genuine and not a predator. He told us we should be protective over our children with ANY adults as well. And that he found that parents can be too lenient with their children and that they should never be lax in any situation with their child being away from them. I found this to be very reassuring. He wasn’t saying don’t trust the clergy but he was also saying that satan can be found lurking anywhere, that man is corrupt but not the Church and it’s beautiful teaching.
Are your parish priests speaking out against the sex abuse scandal in PA at mass? Can the Pope and Bishops speak out against this publically now? After such a large scandal can the Church just say they stand against this?
If there is evidence of this please show me because I haven’t searched the media a whole lot (easier to ask here).
