Five years ago: revisiting the Priestly Scandal of 2003

Here's a thoughtful piece by Pete Vere in the Washington Times on the damage done and lessons learned. On a positive note, go and visit this beautiful new blog A Tribute to Our Priests for inspirational pictures.

I hope you take some time every day to pray for our priests. We will never know what a difficult time they have, and we owe them a great deal. We take time every night in our family rosary to pray for the Holy Father and all priests, and pray a special prayer for priests on Fridays when we have a rosary Holy Hour with the Apostolate for Family Consecration. Cardinal Arinze and the wonderful priests of the Apostolate give talks from the Catechism and help us to appreciate the gift of the priesthood. On Thursdays as my parish closes Euchartistic Adoration, we say a special prayer for priests and the three seminarians from our parish. Aren't we blessed?

Let's pray especially for those seminarians who are approaching ordination this spring.
