The sexual abuse scandal facing the Catholic Church is a crucifixion of the body of Christ and all Catholics share in this suffering. Archbishop Jason Gordon said the Church is presently going through its “long walk to Jerusalem” but suffering is on the path to resurrection.
In his homily at the 2018 Annual General Meeting of the Society of St Vincent de Paul at Presentation College, Chaguanas last Sunday, the Archbishop alluded to the “revelations” which have come out over the past few months specifically the reports from the United States.
He asked the congregation how they felt about this and “bad”, “concerned”, “disappointed” and “angry” were responses given. Archbishop Gordon wondered if they were still proud to wear a jersey stating they were Catholic.
