I got this begging e-mail this morning. I get such e-mails from Opus Bono Sacerdotii on a fairly regular basis. I used to get very fancy, expensive looking mailers — yes, of course, asking for money — in the mail, but they have stopped given I never responded to them. Have a read. Two of the Catholic priests in dire straights are supposedly such because of medical conditions — and nothing else (such as molesting kids). So the Catholic, the Catholic Church and the Pope just abandons them when they have back surgery or arthritis. I though Catholic priests in every sense were meant to be MARRIED to the Church. So what happened to ‘in sickness and in health’?
Is this REAL?

So what is YOUR take? I do NOT get it. I did NOT think the Catholic Church just abandoned priest.
OK. I do know that this group does help Catholic priests implicated in sex abuse and other sex crimes. Two things on that. Of late, on the issue of forgiving Catholic women who have abortions scores of Catholics have been shouting at me that forgiveness is at the CORE of their belief. So why doesn’t the Pope, the Catholics and the Church just forgive these ‘accused’ and take care of them? They were or still are Catholic priests? In this e-mail they are ALL Fathers, albeit with very generic names. So they must be priests. That is my second point. If they are being called ‘Father’ they should be a priest. If they are a bona fide priest it is incumbent on the Pope to take care of them. That is my take. IF they are not priest they should masquerade as priests.
