Insightful religion columnist Terry Mattingly addresses the huge challenge facing the Catholic Church in his September 10 column.
Mattingly writes about a letter to the Holy Father signed by about 100 prominent Catholic women, challenging, really imploring Pope Francis to speak up and be more forthright about the sexual abuse and sexual misconduct among so many priests in the Church. It’s a frank, tough letter by these Catholic women and I can only imagine that Pope Francis is really feeling the heat.
This is a very tough hour for the Church. She badly needs our prayers.
