Let he without sin ...
Over the last 24 hours there has been a flurry of news articles regarding a Cardinal who has admitted, "my sexual conduct has fallen below the standards expected of me" following allegations of misconduct by four adults over thirty years ago.
Sadly some people seem to have used this occasion to attack him further - not by hurling stones as might have been the custom 2,000 years ago but by writing articles or blogs. Surely as Catholics respond to in the following ways?
1. Pray for the Cardinal concerned
2. Pray for those who made these allegations, that they may receive healing and peace
3. Examine our own consciences and go to confession - this is a reminder that we all sin and need grace.
