Complicit in a greater plan...

I am not sure just how to respond to this. I know so many good and faithful priests...yet THIS is the priest everyone in Buffalo is talking about. As I consider the effort to separate the Catholic faithful from the hierarchy by those who wish to quell the voice of the Church I can only think that incidents such as these will add fuel to the fire. The Evil One knows our weaknesses and plays them. We are in a battle.

  1. Alas, priests are subject to same temptations as the rest of us. But given their vocation, when they fall it stands out.

  2. The question is: Does the church forgive him now?

  3. We have to forgive him; Christ would, and we must follow His lead. Father has given full restitution, and will now pay to Ceaser what is Ceasers, but for the Church, there is nothing left to do but forgive. That is what makes us different from the rest of society demanding a pound of flesh.
