Lets Pray For Priests

Old problems resurface (here) from the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley.

This is from a Jesuit in the comment section of this post.

Unfortunately, this situation is present in many of our schools and institutions, with the knowledge of superiors, not only regarding sexual scandals, but also corruption and financial ones, by both Jesuit and lay members of the faculties and boards. When asked about the actions they should take to change the situation, superiors reply that they cannot do anything... Cannot ? Or they deny the existence of such problems. Why should we be surprised then to see that , worldwide, we dont have vocations anymore or very few ?

I pray that this year of the priesthood may change our hearts ( we, Jesuits) in order to acknowledge our infidelity for so many years as a body, and to take the right steps for a complete change.

Good for you, Padre..."...From some fissure, the smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God"-attributed to Paul VI. I do not any longer think it an xaggeration to saY that this is so. I have also come to the conclusion that the systematized silence by the hierarchy of the Church on the matter of the abuse of the children of God by her " lost Sheppards", is, in the end, the more serious sin.
