On Friday, Jerry and Debbie want to hear from you regarding the most recent rash of sexual abuse and cover up charges against the Church, most notably in the lengthy grand jury report out of Pennsylvania. The magnitude of that report is utterly staggering, and it has sent new shock waves through the Church in the U.S. and beyond. A statement from the Vatican said:
“The abuses described in the report are criminal and morally reprehensible. Those acts were betrayals of trust that robbed survivors of their dignity and their faith…. there should be accountability for both abusers and those who permitted
abuse to occur”
Has all of this shaken your faith in the Church? Your trust in our priests? What do you tell your children? If you had a chance to speak with Pope Francis, what would you tell him? Can you urge your sons and grandsons to consider a priestly vocation? What are you doing to show support for the vast majority of our priests who, in spite of the fact that they would never dream of committing such atrocities, find themselves under intense scrutiny and the target of growing persecution?
Join us for what we hope and pray will be a fruitful and healing conversation.
