It's not over.

A few years ago a bishop stated that the scandal was over. His statement was either wishful thinking or a horrible joke. The scandal is not over done with. As long as some leech-- I mean lawyer can see a way to make a buck this will go on and on. As long as juries give millions of dollars to people who claim to have been abused more than a decade ago and who offer not a shred of physical proof, the nightmare will go on. As long as the wrong type of man is allowed to persevere in the seminary the scandal will go on.

“For God’s sake, why do you damnable sodomites pursue the heights of ecclesiastical dignity with such fiery ambition?”
---- St. Peter Damian

Pray for us St. Peter.
Our Lady of LaSallete, pray for us.

I remeber the quote from a seminarian in the book Goodbye, Good Men;

"If you wore a cassock, you were called a Daughter of Trent. But if you wore womens underwear, you were called Seminarian of the Year"
