To summarize what he said:
…Church leaders failed to adequately screen applicants for the priesthood during the confusion caused by the Sexual Revolution. Amidst the changes of thought and practice coming with the Sexual Revolution, they failed to detect and address, with sufficient boldness, clarity and quickness, the lies that had crept into the culture.
…In the 1970s and ‘80s especially, many seminaries were places of dissent from orthodox teaching about Scripture, theology and especially sexual ethics… It was erroneously thought among some that the nature of the priesthood itself would change. Sadly, some seminaries became places with not only men who lacked a true calling from Jesus to the priesthood but even where a homosexual subculture sprang up.
…Putting a priest on a pedestal not only fails to recognize his call to be a servant, but it can invite some to enter the priesthood for ulterior motives such as a “comfortable life.” Nothing could be farther from Jesus’ intentions for His priesthood.
…One should enter the priesthood through a calling from Jesus to share in His mission… Church leaders have been slow to embrace this mission and settled for simply maintaining her membership… Instead of being Catholic out of conviction and a deep relationship with Jesus, the faith has become for too many something merely cultural.
