This talk is difficult for Fr. Mike to give, but sadly, it is also necessary. Since the Pennsylvania Report was released, practically every headline with the word “Catholic” in it has been about the report, which gives accounts of three hundred priests who allegedly abused over one thousand minors over seventy years. Indignation is not the main message Fr. Mike wants to express here—although he feels that too. More than anything, he wants his listeners to know that now—more than ever—we need to live virtuous and holy lives and become the saints the Church needs.
