““I grieve with you at what may be the greatest disappointment and sin for the church: the violation and victimization by any members of the church, and most specifically any of its clergy, of the young and vulnerable …by leaders and pastors of the faithful whose priority is to embody by their lives the truth and way of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a tragedy. We must bring all of this to the light, and find our way forward by finding the same mind, heart, and way as Christ Jesus.””
