Warnings and qualities
It can never be repeated enough that children must be protected from such evils and the people who are culpable in these matters must be held personally responsible.
Yet each of us must also remember what Saint Paul says about bishops in today’s first reading and each of us pray for our own bishop: that he may be
a lover of goodness,
holding fast to the true message as taught
so that he will be able
both to exhort with sound doctrine
and to refute opponents.
Indeed, you and I should exhibit these same qualities in our own lives, no matter who we are.
