Enough is enough!
The words from the first reading today resound in our hearts, during these times, as Ezekiel describes the harlotry of God's people. Fr. Steve traces the current abuse scandals in the clergy to the bending and breaking of the clergy's moral compass after Vatican II, despite all the good that came out of that Ecumenical Council. He reiterates the Church's edict that men who are same-sex attracted should not be ordained to the priesthood. Again, he calls on the bishops in the Church to clean house, without fear of damaged reputations or legal liability. The Lord wants to restore the Church as the bride of Christ - but pardon must also come with justice for victims of clergy abuse.
