Pope Benedict XVI And The Sexual Abuse Crisis: Working For Reform And Renewal by Gregory Erlandson & Matthew Bunson
It is a great book. Get it. Read it. It shows that the man at the top of the hierarchy does get “it”. It seems it is the underlings like diocesan bishops who do not get it.
If I find the website that they recommend I’ll post it.
Yesterday in my homily I expressed/explained to the parishioners that we need to be praying for all victims of abuse including Mr. Vai. We need to pray for Mr. Newburger and (gasp) even the priest perpetrator Francis De Luca. If there is something that makes us angry, (like it seems that those men have in varying degrees), then we need to pray for them. I broached this subject because of all of the vitriol that I am witnessing aimed at all of these parties.
