Integrity demands full disclosure: Seminarians are not boys. They are young Catholic adult men with a substantial Catholic education [or they wouldn’t be in a seminary] Some of them were “wimps” who went down into sexual sin with priest, bishop, or even Cardinal and obviously went into hiding about it. Their cowardice expanded the clerics’ sins further and further when it might well have been stopped.
In the process, they might have experienced their own martyrdom – and well they should have. If a 15 year old girl [Marie Gorretti] gave her life rather than be violated, were there not even a couple of “violated” seminarians willing to love enough to suffer too!
I have serious doubts about the manhood and integrity and courage of SOME seminarians across the land which warrants very serious investigation. Otherwise, even a few of these today may end up as fodder for Satan.
In God I trust
