Why I’m Responsible

I’m responsible for the abuse crisis in the Church. I didn’t abuse any children, or enable a priest to abuse children, or look the other way when a priest was abusing a child, or cover up any abuse. No, I haven’t done anything like that, but if I’m honest, you will see that I am [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Francis de Sales
