The Pedophilia Scandal and Leadership

by Tom James on 08/23/18

How can all Leaders respond to the crisis embroiling the Catholic Church? Acts of pedophilia on children and young persons by priests (and others?) and the widespread cover-up by bishops and the hierarchy of the Church?

And my answer is that all of us PRAY!

Heavenly Father, show your healing power, kindness, love, and grace to all of the victims of terrible acts of pedophilia, lust by priests and others. Let them not despair, lose hope, or suffer mental damage. Let them turn to you, Jesus, and join with you on the cross where they can experience the grace-filled act of saying with Jesus, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do!”

Heavenly Father, fill them with the healing act of forgiveness, so that they might be able to say in the Our Father prayer, “Forgive me my sins as I forgive those who have sinned against me.”

Jesus, let not the evil Person continue to hurt them in their terrible memories, but let them close up that spiritual wound with your grace-filled act of forgiveness and go on with their lives filled with faith in you, hope in you, and love of you!!! Again, Jesus, let not the evil act diminish their love of the Church, which is your mystical body. I hope they share in your wondrous gift of the Eucharist, all the sacraments, and the joy of shared love of you in parish life.
