We need to fix the man-made fracture to the body of Christ

I must keep reminding myself that the Church acts slowly…some say in centuries.  I don’t think the abuse issue has centuries to waite.  We need movement.  We need healing.  We need to fix the man-made fracture to the body of Christ.  Even though we can all have individual relationships with God that do not effect each others individual relationships with God our sin does effect one another.  Our sin effects all of us who make up the body of Christ.  That is why it is so easy to see, say, think, and feel that this sexual abuse mess touches us all, (pardon the pun).

About follow1in3

I am a Roman Catholic priest ordained for the Diocese of Wilmington, DE who is also a victim of clergy sexual abuse. I am often angered by the insensitiviy and hostility of other clergy, the hierarchy and the so-called people-of-God. If clergy, bishops included, really and truly understood abuse, (any kind of abuse), I would not feel the need to blog on occasion. It is very frustraing.
