Praised be Jesus and Mary!
Another scandal is circulating in Facebook about a priest publicly humiliating a single mother during baptism. A lot of people stopped believing in God or stopped going to church because of these scandals by church authorities.
And so I tell my friends,
“God is perfect, but I am not. Blame me and not my religion.
Priests, in spite of the authority bestowed on them by the Church, are also sinners; they are not God. Let us not allow their sins to ruin our faith and our souls.”
I posted this in Facebook and here are some of the comments:
– “The church exist not because there are priests but because there is God.”
– “…there are lots of people who do not understand the separation of the office of priesthood and the acts of persons who happened to be priests.”
-“I also want to say that we should not judge priest, if priest err, Jesus will be the judge. He doesn’t like it if we criticize them.”
It is very likely that we will receive questions and criticisms because of these scandals. But, be strong and keep the faith. If God is for us, who can be against us?
