I’m so upset by this! Over the years, acquaintances, family, friends, parishioners, etc.
Have voiced worry about having their children as altar servers.
Walked with their children quickly past Mother Church’s buildings, fiercely holding their hands.
Made snide comments about not trusting priests or Mother Church’s heirarchy.
Stopped attending Mass.
I’m bringing this up because I’m beginning to have these underlying worries and thoughts about Her heirarchy as well. It’s disturbing!
How can I help maintain my faith in Mother Churchs’ priests if I can’t even trust that they are being held accountable for their sins?
Five priests cycled through my church in several years. Four of which were accused of molestation…it’s disgusting!
