To the Editor:
I am the delighted and proud father of eight children and 11 grandchildren. This family is confused, embarrassed and angry. We are looking for a contrite, humble Catholic Church. We look to the representative of the church we know best: the parish priest.
A pastor with a heart of contrition. A pastor humbled. A pastor able to say something like, “I represent the church. I apologize. I desperately want to be with you as a brother. This brother needs you. Let’s prayerfully walk together.”
That is the pastor we need.
