    Does anyone remember how David treated Saul?…As God’s annointed, even when God had left him.
    We may have strong opinions on what we think about what’s going on
    right now, but a lack of respect, mocking one of Christ’s priests isn’t
    the best example to lead.

    Not mockery, but much prayer is needed for this pope.

    There are certainly a lot of heavy, heavy hearts in the Church at this time…

    Vicki K says something we must always be mindful of as a rule: do not mock or show disrespect for one of Christ’s priests; but that can never be an absolute prohibition, as so many evil events have shown. I’m sure Vicki K will agree that this recently reported one should never have been swept under the carpet even though it seems to have been for a half century by theour institutional church, until a priest seems to have broken the Confessional seal (which is not to say he should have – the report is unclear). There are things being done by Catholic priests – even high and mighty ones – that are at least as wicked as sexual abuse. What’s been happening in Rome these past 4+ years has caused serious, devout people to cry out for a reckoning.

    Dear johnhenry,

    “Taking advantage of others to get what you want.
    Expecting special treatment without question……”

    Thank you for listing the many sins that we all suffer from, both on this blog (both authors and commenters), and everywhere else.

    At this time of year, many parishes hold penitential services. Your comment will help many to prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. God love you.
