With the visit of our Holy Father to this country, we are once again reminded of the “clergy abuse” scandal.
We should all pray for those tortured souls!
But, I am reminded of the many, many good, holy, dedicated priests who have served us faithfully, year after year.
They have been there when we needed them, inspiring us, giving spiritual direction, celebrating the holy sacrifice of the Mass and administering the sacraments. They are there – in sickness and in health, indeed – ’til death do us part. Let us not forget them.
May we say: “Thank you, fathers!” and “God bless you.”
