What we must do
In some of the coverage, there has been an element of false accusation.
But the hideous reality of a few clerics abusing children (and various authorities failing to protect the children) cannot be denied.
However, no matter what our opinions or experiences may be, all of us can and must look to Christ on this Good Friday.
Christ – falsely accused.
Christ – assaulted by religious authorities.
Christ – tortured and ridiculed.
Christ – crucified and buried.
Before Christ we must kneel and before Christ we must weep.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, be merciful to me – a sinner.
