Catholics, Do Not Despair

There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth among the faithful because of the latest (and perhaps worst) sex scandal in the Church’s history. To compound matters, the scandal has come to public attention during the ruinous papacy of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is more interested in Caesar than in God.

But the Church isn’t its hierarchy or its priests. It is its members:

A man’s body is all one, though it has a number of different organs; and all this multitude of organs goes to make up one body; so it is with Christ. We too, all of us, have been baptized into a single body by the power of a single Spirit, Jews and Greeks, slaves and free men alike; we have all been given drink at a single source, the one Spirit. — 1 Corinthians 12: 12-13

Those who have betrayed the Church have left it, in spirit if not in name. The Church lives on in the hearts of the faithful.
