    I, a lay person, am also feeling under attack by some of the negative comments directed at ALL Catholics, not just clergy, by a lot of non Christians.

    I am so sad for my faith the faith I believe in so much, my God is who I believe in and the catholic church is the one that is letting me down. I will always defend my faith and my God, but at this moment the catholic church I cannot defend.

    The strength of our Church is its unity in the worship of the only non sinner in all of history – Jesus of Nazareth. I pray for the Cardinal as I pray for myself; no better no worse.Just where were we looking at that troubled time? God bless us all.

    Our priests and our Seminarians need support, more so now, than ever before.
    If we as laypeople are stressed over what is happening,think of our Clergy.
    Prayer is the way here.

    Jesus was falsely accused and died for us. So many Bishops have been accused of coverups and now our Cardinal convicted, and other good men accused along with the guilty. “Father forgive them. They know not what they do!”
    Almighty God give us the strength to follow You in this the land of Your Holy Spirit. Hold all our Bishops and priests in the palm of Your hand. Mary, our mother keep them under your mantle, pray for us Sts Peter & Paul pray for them.

    Let us pray for an increase in faith, HOPE and love – for ourselves, our communities, and for those who offend. We are all fragile human beings, and capable of great goodness as well as great depravity. Down through the centuries the institutional church has been confronted and challenge, and we must pray to remain faithful to Jesus Christ and his teaching. Let us pray for each other, our communities, the priesthood; and may we all share in ministry and service so that what was said of the early Christians will be manifest in our living and acting – “behold how they love one another!”

    a bit like the media being silenced after the trial for which, all but the Catholic church, in this land abided. Is this the obedience which God asks of us? Still and silent with God, alone, in prayer for loving guidance.
    Once again, thank you for sharing a difference of opinion. Vanessa.

    How sad that the press would latch onto Cardinal Pell’s case like thirsting wolves. Guilty or not in this instance we are all sinners just some sins are more attracted to publicity. Let us all pray constantly that these current sad issues within our church will not weaken in any way our depth of faith

    Let’s pray for the victims not just the clergy.

  • Susi Sager 2 weeks

    Thank you for you insightful and kind words. In times like this some need to blame someone for the sins of many. My we continue to be an example of Christ’s love and compassion for ourselves and others Xx Susi

    Jesus says to St. Faustina (Diary Entry 1489) “You are not yet in your homeland; so go fortified by My grace, and fight for my kingdom in human souls; fight as a king’s child would; and remember the days of your exile will pass quickly, and with them the possibility of earning merit for heaven. I expect from you…a great number of souls who will glorify my Mercy for all eternity.”
    Thank you Bishop Christopher for this message. We will continuously fight for our families, fight for the Catholic Church and our faith, continuously pray for our Pope, Bishops and Cardinal Pell, all priests, religious and laity around the world. We entrust everything that is happening to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary. JESUS I TRUST IN YOU.
