Abusive Priests

“The abuse which has caused this crisis is by every standard wrong and rightly considered a crime by society; it is also an appalling sin in the eyes of God.  To the victims and their families, wherever they may be, I express my profound sense of solidarity and concern. . . there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young. . . God alone is the source of holiness, and it is to him above all that we must turn for forgiveness, for healing and for the grace to meet this challenge with uncompromising courage and harmony of purpose.”  Pope John Paul II April 23, 2002
