Just what I needed to see this morning. I just read an article in the Metro about a Franciscan priest assaulting several boys while visiting Boston. Turns out this priest was a good friend of mine and a year ahead of me in seminary. Infact some of the assaults happened while I was still in seminary in Boston. News like these really are hard to deal with, but when it comes closer to you, even more so. On one of the lists I'm on there's a rather bad view of monks, this only makes it worse. Everyone suffers, the children and their families, primarily and the hardest, and the entire church in general. God help these children to grow beyond this suffering and not to lose their faith in God and His church because of some wolves in sheep's clothing.
